Each expansion site is equipped with a bright green computer kiosk that links to college planning resources on the Library’s website, offers customers a way to contact College Depot staff for additional information, and enables customers to print scholarship and other information directly from the kiosk. Staff at each location has received training in college planning basics, including college searches, career exploration, college applications, scholarship searches, and financial aid in order to assist customers locally. Expansion sites also host workshops and walk-in college planning sessions.
College Depot is a full-service college planning center at Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave., that offers free one-on-one assistance, family consultation and workshops on all aspects of the college planning process. The service is open to anyone seeking assistance college planning.
