While the Garfield County Libraries have provided access to Live Homework Help for a few years now, a new app brings this service to the palm of your hand. Now you can connect to a tutor in real-time for live, one-to-one help on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. To Go is the mobile companion for the Live Homework Help service, and the only education app that connects you to an expert tutor for real-time help.

All versions of the mobile classroom feature interactive chat, shared files, and co-browsed web pages, and the iPad version adds a collaborative whiteboard. With To Go, you can:

• Connect to a live tutor for one-to-one help in math, science, social studies, and English.

• Save and review past one-to-one tutoring sessions.

• Store essays, assignments, or photos of homework problems in your Locker.

• Share items in your Locker with a tutor.

• Access thousands of educational resources from the SkillsCenter™ Resource Library.

You’ll need a account to use the app, and you can get one for free with your library card from the Garfield County Libraries. You’ll need to create a username and password on the computer version first, then you can use the same information to sign in from your computer or with the app.

Don’t let homework frustrate you. Get help now. Download the app today from the App Store, or find out more information at

Seattle-based singer/songwriter Jill Cohn will be performing at the Rifle and New Castle Branch Libraries to help kick off a summer season of fun at the libraries.

Michael Henningsen from The Weekly Wire says “with simple grace and overwhelming charm, Jill Cohn adds a fresh twist to singer-songwriter folk-rock that has rarely been seen this side of Joni Mitchell. She’s not someone you can afford to pass up.”

Cohn was a top-five finalist in the Lilith Fair Talent Search, and has opened concerts for several national artists, including Jewel, Stacey Earle, Loudon Wainwright III and Dave Matthews.

She will be at the Rifle Branch Library on Tuesday, May 24, and will return the following week on Wednesday, June 1, to perform at the New Castle Branch Library. Both shows are free, begin at 7 p.m. and are open to all ages. For more information visit
