You might think that the Library was a good resource for your 5th grade state report (and you are right! It is!), but we can help you well beyond 5th grade! The Library has fantastic resources that are accessible remotely, which means that you can do them all without even changing out of your pajamas (I can hardly think of a better way to prepare for college!). Here are some great ways our website can help you prepare for college:
Do you need to prepare for college entrance exams like the ACT and SAT? We have a database with free practice tests, tutorials, and e-books. All you need is a library card to log in.
Do you need to strengthen your academic skills to prepare for placement tests? Our College Center can help with that.
What if you're preparing to take the GED? You can take practice tests and build your skills with the High School Equivalency Center.
What about community service to strengthen your application appeal? Consider doing volunteer work at the library (okay, this one will require you to change out of your PJs...).
You can also be part of our monthly Teen Volunteer Board, where you can volunteer with a group and work on projects together and help the librarians with special projects!
Come in and ask a librarian how we can help you prepare for college, or check out the "Plan for College" section on our Homework Resources page. We're ready to help!
