Launch Pad College Application Program

The Launch Pad College Application program was initiated in 2009 as a free program to put the universe of college education within grasp through a broad array of college application services presented in public schools and seminars offered at the Library. In 2016-17, the program coordinator helped more than 1,600 students with various parts of the process and 178 students through the yearlong comprehensive process to gain college acceptance. More than $3.4M in scholarship offers were received by these 178 students!!

In collaboration with senior English teachers in the Fort Worth Independent School District, counseling opportunities are arranged with nearly every senior and junior student in several high schools representing a wide variety of populations, including Arlington Heights, Eastern Hills, North Side, Paschal, Southwest, Trimble Tech High School and the Texas Academy of Biological Sciences, a specialty program of the Fort Worth Independent School District.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

Children’s Author Series began in 1997 to expose children from across our city to working authors and how they create their stories, which inspires young minds to read and write. To date, more than 40,000 schoolchildren in all neighborhoods have enjoyed a free live author presentation in a library or school.
