Library creates safe co-learning spaces for K-12 students

In response to the community’s need for study and tutoring spaces for students in grades K-12, Heights Libraries has created four co-learning spaces in the teen room of the Lee Road Branch.

Each space is surrounded by Plexiglas barriers, and can accommodate one student and either a parent, sibling, tutor, or another student, who can work together on schoolwork in a safe, socially distanced space. Two of the spaces have computers with internet access, while the other two do not.

Co-learning space reservations last 45 minutes, must be reserved in advance, and are limited to one per day per customer.

Other requirements for using the space include:

  • At least one person using the space must be a K-12 student.
  • At least one person making the reservation must have a library card.
  • No more than two people are allowed in a space.
  • The persons using the space much follow all Heights Libraries COVID-19 safety protocols, such as wearing a mask over the nose and mouth.

To reserve a co-learning space, call the Heights Libraries Lee Road Youth Services Department at (216) 932-3600, ext. 1293, or stop in and speak to a Youth Services staff member.
