Students Get Prepped for the SAT Math 1 Subject Test on April 26

| No Comments
Students who are planning to take the Math SAT or SAT Math 1 subject test in the coming year will benefit from two intensive SAT prep seminars at Greenwich Library this month on April 5 and 26. The Library also offers a wide variety of student programs and events including a middle school book club, the Student Leadership Council for teens interested in planning programs for their peers, and Friday Night Chess, all of which meet monthly, among others. 

Thursday, April 3 at 7 p.m., Student Leadership Council Meeting 
Students in grades 7-12 get together at Teen Central on the second floor to brainstorm about using library resources to initiate and execute projects relevant to their peer group in exchange for community service hours. Refreshments are served. For more information contact Ed Morrissey at emorrissey@greenwichlibrary.org or Everett Purdue at epurdue@greenwichlibrary.org

Friday, April 4 at 7 p.m., Friday Night Chess 
The first Friday of every month is Chess Night with National Master Rich Jackson who provides instruction, supervised play and an occasional challenge match. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Bring a love of the game or a desire to learn. Open to all at no charge, no registration required. For more information contact Margaret Walsh at mwalsh@greenwichlibrary.org

Saturday, April 5 at 11 a.m., The 18 Things You Need to Know to Kick Butt on the Math SAT
If you're looking for a fast track to success on the SAT math section, then this seminar is for you. Craig Lanzoni, President of Linear Learning Co., will present a four-hour, intensive seminar covering 18 critical things that, when mastered and applied, will assure success on the math SAT. This program is open to all at no charge. Please register online through the Greenwich Library calendar or contact Margaret Walsh at mwalsh@greenwichlibrary.org

Monday, April 14 at 1 p.m., Minecraft Gaming Afternoon 
Calling all Minecrafters ages eight and up! Come to Greenwich Library to register for the new Greenwich Library Minecraft server featuring a common spawn-point where all players can gather and socialize--the Central Library. From there, you can teleport to your town's very own world (Greenwich) where you are free to mine, build, and craft to your heart's content. If you want to play, bring in your library card and tell us your player name and we'll add you to the server. Once you're registered you can play at the Library during special Minecraft events, or from home. The server will be running many of your favorite plugins such as Grief Prevention and Core Protect. For more information contact Nicole Allen or Everett Purdue at lendingservices@greenwichlibrary.org.

Thursday, April 24 at 4:30 p.m., Middle School Book Club 
Middle School Book Club is for literature fans in grades 6-8. This month's book is I'll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan. This 2014 Nutmeg Award nominee tells the story of Sam Border and his brother Riddle. Raised by an unstable father, Sam has long been the voice of his silent younger brother but everything changes when Sam meets Emily Bell. Register for the program and pick up a copy of the book at the 2nd floor reference desk. For more information contact Margaret Walsh at mwalsh@greenwichlibrary.org

Saturday, April 26 at 11 a.m., Succeeding on the SAT Math I Subject Test 
While a 680 on the math section of your SAT puts you in the 91st percentile, the same score on the Math I subject test barely hits the 77th percentile. 12 More Things You Need to Know picks up where "18 Things" left off. Linear Learning Co. will again be your guide as you look at the algebraic, geometric and trigonometric expressions and identities that will help you to perform at your best, plus tools, tricks, and techniques. This three-hour seminar is followed by a one-hour practice test. Open to all at no charge. Please register online through the Greenwich Library calendar or contact Margaret Walsh at mwalsh@greenwichlibrary.org
