Sacramento Public Library Initiates High School Diploma Program

Sacramento Public Library Initiates High School Diploma Program
Posted July 15th, 2014 @ 8:23am by KFBK News - Kaitlin Lewis

The Sacramento Public Library is stepping up to help about 50,000 people in our area who still don't have their high school diplomas.

It's all because of a very generous grant.

"That will allow us to pilot the idea of the library being a place where someone can attain their high school diploma," Rivkah Sass, the director of the Sacramento Public Library, said. 

Sass says along with the diploma, students will receive a certificate for a career path of their interest. There is an age limit though.

"The minimum age is 19, and we don't have a maximum age yet," Sass said. 

The classes are online, but she recommends people start off coming to the library for in-person help and the library provides free Internet access and free computers to use, she said. 

All you have to do to get started is grab a library card because, as Sass says:

"It's the best card in your wallet."
