Second Annual Foothills College Fair
Posted on 07/26/2019
Graduate with diplomaDo you or your teen have questions about college? Foothills Library invites you to attend our College Fair on Saturday, August 10, from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. to meet representatives from local schools, attend seminars to help you answer questions, and more! Open to teens of all ages and their parents. No registration is required.

“This program was suggested and created by our Teen Library Council, who expressed their need for more basic information regarding applying for and attending college, and the need for that information earlier in their high school careers," says Teen and Adult Librarian Erin Garred. "Last year was the first year for it, and it was such a success, and we have had so many people asking for it again, that we have brought it back this year to help those families in our community who are looking for this kind of information.”
