When it comes to teenagers, homework takes up a lot of time. The Danville Public Library offers many reference materials for teenagers to use on their research projects and posters for school, but sometimes teenagers need some extra help for their
math or history homework, something the reference materials and wide range of books may not be able to help with. Below are useful links for teens to use to help them with their work (or take a quick break from study time).
