College Shopping at the Library

When I read the post about how the Louisville (Kentucky) Free Public Library (LFPL) and University of Louisville have started a College Shop at the Shawnee Branch on bizjournals.com’s blog, I was intrigued by this remarkable program. The College Shop puts into action the idea that we, as public and or academic librarians as well as university representatives, need to help everyone attain their desire to attend college. Wanting to go to college is only half the battle. How does someone get in to college? How does an eighteen year-old pay for college? How does an older adult, with limited computer skills, find information about college-level programs in today’s increasingly paperless world? These questions and more make this program incredibly relevant.
