We have a new database, Mometrix, that allows you to prep and practice for a variety of tests, including GED, GRE, Praxis, ACT, SAT, and many more!

In order to access the database, choose your home library from the list, and on the next screen when it asks for your “password” enter your library barcode number (located on the back of your card, beneath the barcode). You can then choose “Practice Tests” from the left-hand menu to view all available tests.
