Posted January 29, 2011 9:04 a.m. EST
A quick note to share that there are spaces left at a few programs for teens at the Eva Perry Regional Library in Apex in February.
- Choosing the Right College for You (for high school students and parents). It's 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday. Brooke Daly, college and financial aid consultant, will give pointers on beginning the search for the best college for you. Also discussed is how to maximize a college visit. Call 387-2100 to register.
- Gum Art program for grades 6 and up. From 2:30 to 4 p.m. Feb. 13, make sculptures and artwork out of chewed gum. Come prepared to chew a lot of gum and use your creative "juices." (That's what the listing says). Register by calling 387-2100.
- College Financial Aid Workshop (for high school students and parents). It's 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 15. This program is geared to both students and parents and will show you the ins and outs of the financial aid process: why it's imperative to plan ahead to get the most out of the financial aid system, how to choose colleges that will give you the most generous financial aid packages, and more. Call 387-2100 to register.
It's worth noting that most libraries in the area have teen programs. They include workshops and classes, book clubs and leadership programs. So if your teen is looking for something to do, check our Triangle libraries resources page for links to the library systems in the area.
