Newark Public Library begins ninth year of Club Success
Press Release October 17, 2002

The Newark Public Library announced the renewal of its popular "Club Success" program that offers Newark students in grades one through eight focused and aggressive assistance with their homework, rendering assistance in the areas of mathematics, language arts literacy, science, social studies and reading. The program is funded by grants from The Newark Public Schools and The Lucent Technologies Foundation. Approximately one hundred schools are represented in the program, which is in its ninth year of operation. More than 1,500 students participated in last year’s program, with total attendance reaching 5,000 students.

There are no fees or academic requirements to join "Club Success." The clubs meet Mondays through Thursdays. A team of library and school employees, consultants, and community volunteers manage the program. Michele Cappetta, youth services coordinator, added that ten high school "peer tutors" assist the licensed teachers who provide the homework assistance.

The Clubs meet at all Library locations during the school year.
