The Memphis Public Library and Information Center (MPLIC), in partnership with the Memphis Talent Dividend, is helping customers to reach their full potential in the New Year with the Library’s College Fair 2014, coming to the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library (3030 Poplar Avenue, meeting rooms A – C ) on January 14 – 15.

Each day of the fair is uniquely designed to meet the specific needs of Memphis citizens of all ages. On Tuesday, January 14, 10 am – 4 pm, high school students and recent graduates are invited to talk to college recruiters, ask questions about financial aid, take a look at dorm life, followed by a tour of the Library, and a crash course in Greek life!(High school students and recent graduates are asked to register prior to the event.) Working adults and other nontraditional students considering college are encouraged to attend the fair on Wednesday, January 15, noon – 5 pm. College recruiters will be on hand to help them navigate through the college admissions process, locate resources for financial aid, and answer questions.

College Fair attendants also will receive other helpful information like a sample college essay, an ACT writing test sample, a dorm room checklist, and earning statistics for college graduates.
