"How Do I Apply to College?" Helping Patrons Meet Their Higher Education Goal

March 26, 10:00am Pacific

As information and education centers, libraries are an ideal place for patrons-teens and adults-to learn about higher education opportunities. What can you offer in response to patrons who are curious about college? If you or your staff feel flummoxed by college-related reference questions, this session will acquaint you with the different types of college-bound students, college-related resources to promote at your library, and ways to work with community partners on programs for each audience. Provide help for the many patrons who do not have access to pricey college prep programs and services. Learn how to initiate or enhance your reference services to help more people meet their higher education goals.
