Are you looking for scholarships for college? Trying to prepare for the SAT or the AP test? Look no further than Cecil County Public Library!
CCPL has a myriad of resources just for students looking to apply for college or trying to find scholarships. You can come into the library and check out books on both subjects, such as: “Peterson’s Scholarships, grants and prizes 2015” and “Get Paid to Play: Every Student Athlete’s Guide to over $1 million in College Scholarships.”
However, if you are the type of person who would rather do everything digitally, there are many online resources that you can use through the library’s website. There are online practice tests for the PSAT, SAT, ACT and GED. Just click the Test Prep and Scholarship Resources section on the “Digital Library” tab of the library’s website.
If you are not a big fan of reading, the library has videos and audiobooks to help you study. Hoopla is an audio and video streaming library service which offers numerous test prep resources. If you are studying vocabulary, you could listen to “SAT Prep: Core 100 Words” by downloading it right to your device for free – and listen on your way to school, whether you drive yourself or take the bus. If you need help with math, you could download and watch “New SAT Prep 4: Intro to the Math Section.” All of these resources are free with your CCPL library card.
Are you or your student applying to college and confused by the process to apply for financial aid?
