Take ACT Test For Free
Young adults are invited to take a practice test for the ACT exam at the Studio City Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. This opportunity is presented by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles as a chance to prepare for taking the actual test, which is given before one applies for college admission. To register, you may call the Young Adult Librarian at (818) 755-7873 or stop at the Reference Desk and sign up in person. If you are going to take this exam, it is a good idea to invite a friend to take it, too. Years from now you will both remember this day as one that helped you to prepare for entrance into an important phase of your life — attendance at college.
The practice test will be given under the auspices of the Princeton Review test preparation staff.

L.A. River Red Day Volunteer Event
Sponsored by Keller Williams Studio City office, years ago the all-volunteer Village Gardeners made a huge commitment to maintain their 1/2 mile LA River greenway in Studio City and Sherman Oaks. What they do on an ongoing basis is:
- Mitigate litter and graffiti
- Remove invasive, non-native plant species
- Mulch to restore the soil and save water
- Replant with native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers
- Clear the catch basins to prevent the streets near the river from flooding
- Provide trash containers with weekly pickup service
All of their efforts clearly have a positive impact on the environment and their property values, making their community more desirable.
For any further questions please feel free to contact Nicole Costas at (323) 630-6976.
