Do you know what a FAFSA is? What about Federal Student Aid, or the Pell grant, supplemental grants, scholarships, even student employment? Does reading this scare you? Don’t let it be overwhelming!

The Farmington Public Library and the San Juan College Financial Aid Office have partnered together to help. On Saturday, March 7 and Saturday, March 28 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM , you can get assistance with filling out that pesky FAFSA, or just get the answers to all of your questions.

Long Way Down
By Jason Reynolds

William Holloman is on the most haunting elevator ride of his life. He’s been urged to break “the rules” he’s grown up with.
(No crying. No snitching. Get revenge.) Reynolds’ first novel in verse is a provocative, compelling, and essential love letter to young people in detention centers.
