15-year-old Stevie Bentley can’t wait to head into grade 10.

She is especially excited, like many children, to be back in a school building for full-time classes, as last year’s virtual learning was a challenge.

“I’m pretty excited for this. Hope it will be better. … Last year was a real struggle, ”she said.

But before that, the South High School student has some work to complete for summer school, which she has found difficult to do at home. This is why she attends the Parsons branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, where there are specialists who can solve technical problems and provide academic assistance as part of its Credit Recovery Center.

“I’m really bad for, like, my motivation,” she said. “I just came here to get help because I can’t do it on my own. “
