FVRL is your destination for homework success!
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff can help students quickly find the resources they need to be successful this school year. Staff can assist in finding the answers to tough homework questions, sourcing trusted print and digital information, researching essays and writing bibliographies.
Visit the library for:
- Silent and group study space
- Free Wi-Fi (at most locations)
- Internet and word processing stations access
- Photocopy and print services (available for a small fee)
If you have a library card from one of FVRL's 25 locations, you have access to free online peer tutors for homework help in math, science, and social studies. The service is available from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. Each session is limited to 20 minutes.
How It Works
After clicking "access live peer tutors" you will be re-directed to the Tutor World BC and asked to choose tutoring for either:
- Grades 6 to 9, or
- Grades 10 to 12
For grades 6 to 9, students must login with their FVRL card and Personal Identity Number (PIN). You will then have immediate access to Tutor World BC.
For grades 10 to 12, you will be re-directed to the LearnNowBC website where you must first create a username by providing some personal information and your BC Personal Education Number (PEN), if you know it.
Once you've created a LearnNowBC username, access is granted to Tutor World BC for tutoring. Your personal information is collected under the authority of the School Act and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
