SAT and ACT Test Prep
Your parents keep talking to you about your future and college. It’s their job. Your job, along with homework, cleaning your room, and an array of other assorted chores, is to take either the SAT or the ACT and do well. Here at the library, we also want you to do well on these exams. One of the best things for you to do is to practice. I mean, you don’t run a marathon without warming up and stretching first, right? This is the same thing. If you haven’t already, high schoolers and some middle schoolers should start taking practice tests, looking at sample questions, and becoming familiar with the format of the SAT and ACT. You’ll take the big exam during a four hour chunk on a Saturday. Four hours of testing! You’ll have to get there early to check in, so make sure you give yourself enough time to get ready and eat a good breakfast. You might even be waking up earlier on your scheduled test day than you would for a normal school day. Let the library help prepare you for your test. During our SAT/ACT Test Prep Program on Wednesday, January 18 at 6:00 p.m., the teen librarian will show you how to use Inspire, one of our online databases, to assist you in preparing yourself for your big day. Plus, we’ll even show you how to find the college or university that is right for you and cruise a website to get you cash for college. Hurry! Registration is required and spaces are limited.
