Library Loop: New resources for students 

Truckee Tahoe Unified School District students now have access to free online tutoring. Through HelpNow, live real-time homework assistance is available 24 hours a day by laptop, tablet, or phone from qualified tutors familiar with state standards.

Students can get immediate access without logging in. However, students can login using their public library card to continue working with their preferred tutors or access a “writing lab” to drop off written work and receive feedback. All TTUSD students have a Nevada County Library card. Their username is TTUSD plus their six digit student ID number. Their password is the last four digits of their ID number. For more information or to get help getting started, reach out to your student’s school librarian. 

In addition to all TTUSD students having a Nevada County Library Card, Placer County recently announced that they will start offering library cards for all Tahoe Truckee students as well.
