Today, the Central Library in downtown is kicking off its seventh year of SAT and ACT preparatory courses for students. Unlike other programs, this will not cost students anything. Martin Gomez is a librarian out of the Central Library.

“This is a unique program,” Gomez said. “There is no other public library that I know of, certainly in California, if not in the U.S., that offers such a free program.”

Lorena is one of the students taking the class. She says the program has given her new goals.

“It’s making me want to go to college, and it makes me want to experience more stuff in life,” Lorena said.

The course offers seminars, workbooks and several practice exams for students.
