Through generous funding from the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), the Free Library of Philadelphia is offering free SAT & ACT prep workshops, financial literacy, and FAFSA workshops at five locations.
As part of the program, trained college student coaches are available on Saturdays to assist with SAT prep and other aspects of the college application process. No registration is necessary for meetings with college student coaches; they are informal drop-in sessions where you can discuss your school options, your dream career path, how your extracurricular activities can help, and what you are most excited about when it comes to going to college.
The College Prep Initiative (and the college student coaches) can be found at these five Free Library branch locations every Saturday through May:
Parkway Central Library from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Northeast Regional Library from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Philadelphia Regional Library from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Lucien E. Blackwell West Philadelphia Regional Library from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Widener Branch from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The next SAT test date is March 13th! Use the time wisely by meeting with our college student coaches.
