CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) - Live homework help online. Downloadable books. Video tutorials on how to build websites, create smart phone apps and write code.

Those are some of the resources that the Chattanooga Public Library on Tuesday announced it will make available free of charge to an additional 20,000 Hamilton County public school students.

Kindergarten through 12th-grade students who live outside the city limits will be exempt from a $50 annual fee that the library has charged since September 2011 to non-city residents. The library levied the fee in response to the county's decision that year to halt its library funding.

In the meantime, the library has remade itself into a hotbed of innovation.

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More
