The St. Tammany Parish Library has partnered with Princeton Review for a series of virtual workshops for college-bound students and their parents.
A free, full-length ACT practice will be offered at 9 a.m. on Saturday to give teens the experience of taking the test, and they will receive in-depth feedback on their score.
The feedback will help identify areas of weakness and help students evaluate their performance. Register online at bit.ly/PracticeACTOct10.
In “Dream Colleges: Admissions and Financial Aid,” teens and parents can learn about the key elements of the admissions process at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9. The class will cover changes and issues to consider during this unusual era in admissions. Register online at bit.ly/DreamCollegesNov9.
On a different subject, there will be an in-person sale of books on Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. inside the Slidell Branch Library, 555 Robert Blvd. This is one of a series of sales held on the second Saturday of each month in the Slidell library that will include several hundred specially selected items on a particular theme or subject.
This month’s sale will include cookbooks and magazines about food and beverages on a variety of subjects including ethnic, diet-conscious, keto, vegetarian, home cooking, Southern cuisine, grilling, cocktails, appetizers, soups, slow cooker, baking and breadmaking, limited ingredients and wine. All the sale items are previously owned but are in excellent condition.
All sale items have standard prices. Books are priced at $1, $2, or $3 each. Magazines are priced at four for $1. Cash and checks are accepted. Friends memberships and renewals will be available during the sale.
