School in a jewel

Like the White House with books

Newark is full of hidden treasures. The Newark kids learning with us are sweet, funny, and polite. Plus, they have far more math ability than they thought.

We now have a gem of a location to match our students' inner brilliance. 

I'm proud to announce a one-year pilot partnership between Brick City Thinks and the Newark Public Library

How NPL helps Brick City Thinks

The library champions kids. That's one of their main jobs - and the dedicated staff there take it very seriously. They'll provide:
  • Meeting room equipped with PCs for every student and big projector at the front
  • Wifi access (great for students with their own tablets)
  • Publicly-available computers (perfect for kids learning extra math before class)
  • Huge collection of books for little brothers and sisters to explore
Of course, Newark Public Library drives a hard bargain in return. They expect us to deliver amazing math to our kids, show parents how to take charge in math, and have fun at the same time. And bring it all to Newark families for free.

Don't just check out a book, check out the library

NPL is different from every library I've ever entered. This place is grand. From the marble columns to the grand staircase and mosaic ceilings, the building breathes purpose. Read a book here and feel the importance of your task.

Stop by and check them out. The main branch is at 5 Washington Street and is exquisite.
