We are excited to share that Brainfuse has added a new feature to their HelpNow platform: FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) assistance! Brainfuse has always had live tutors available for assistance with various grade levels and subject areas, but they have now added tutors to help patrons fill out the FAFSA form. FAFSA is a program through the federal government, specifically the U.S. Department of Education, where current and prospective college students can fill out the form to determine eligibility for student financial aid.

As we continue to stay at home and stay strong during this pandemic, the library is going to start offering live virtual programs through Zoom. For each live program that we do, there will be a unique URL that you can click on to connect to that Zoom session. The URL will most likely either be posted in the description of the program on the event calendar on the library website, or it will be emailed to each patron that signs up for the program. As we schedule these live programs, we'll provide exact details for each one.
