Library creates safe co-learning spaces

Co-learning spaces at the Lee Road branch are available for students in grades K–12.

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 acrylic glass 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 four spaces have computers with internet access. 

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.
