Hello College Success Students,
Welcome to the library! I've created the lesson plan below to familiarize you with resources to help you explore careers and colleges, as well as familiarize you with the library catalog. If you have any questions for the library, reach out! You can can chat with a librarian on the this page or on the library catalog. You can also make an appointment to meet with a librarian one-on-one over Zoom.
