The Sonoma County Library is continuing our popular Path to College workshops supporting college-bound high school students and their families. With these workshops the Library seeks to meet the needs of students through all stages of the college preparation and application process.

“Preparing for college can be a stressful time for high school students and their families. We’re proud to support these students and give them the information they need to achieve their higher education goals. Best yet, all our workshops are free!” said Petaluma Library Teen Services Librarian Diana Spaulding.

The Library will be providing workshops this fall on writing compelling college application essays and answers to the UC prompts; approaching the college application process with confidence and a plan; paying for college and completing the online FAFSA; and planning ahead for the transfer from a Junior College to a 4-year University. All workshops are led by qualified local experts and are free and open to high school students and their families.
