College Preparation Series Begins At Belle Isle Library


It’s never too early to begin thinking about the process of selecting the right college for you.

That’s why Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, 843-9601, is partnering with Oklahoma College Assistance Program Scholarship Paths to present a two-part College Preparation Series in September. The sessions will meet on Saturdays at 3:00p.m.for teens aged 12-18 years,  Topics will include learning tips for the scholarship search, completing applications, and managing your time to meet deadlines.

“We meet a lot of young people who take it for granted that they will go to college,” said Belle Isle  librarian Anna Todd.  “They’ve got their heads on straight and know what they want to do, but they need some help getting started.  That’s what these sessions are for.”

The workshops will meet on Saturday, September 14 with the topic “Choosing the Right School For You,” and on Saturday, September 28 to discuss “Scholarship Paths.”

Both sessions are free.  Call the library for details, or visit the Metropolitan Library System website for more information about this or any Metropolitan Library System program.
