Algonquin library to help students prepare for college

ALGONQUIN – The Algonquin Area Public Library District aims to help students prepare for college with upcoming programs.

The library will host “ACT or SAT: What Everyone Should Know” at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Michael Wirth of Tutor Doctor will explain the difference between the ACT and SAT tests, why students should choose one test or the other and explains test details.

This program is open to students in grades nine through 12 and their parents.

At 7 p.m. Oct. 3, the library will host a “College Application Essay Workshop.”

Adrienne Brazil of Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions will show students and parents what college admissions offices want to see in an essay. The workshop will examine topics students will encounter, cover the four steps to writing a winning essay and critique sample admission essays.

Registration is required for the college prep programs, in person at the library at 2600 Harnish Drive, Algonquin, or online at www.aapld.org.

For those who can’t make it to a program, the Algonquin Area Public Library has electronic resource: the LearningExpress Library. It has all of the tips and tools needed for a successful college admission, and is available online at www.aapld.org.
