Local teens can cram for their upcoming exams at Halton Hills Public Library branches


Published January 23, 2023 at 1:54 pm

Halton Hills Public Library branches in both Georgetown and Acton will be available to help teens ace their exams this week.

Library officials know exam time can be a stressful and daunting time. Feeling the pressure of exams can leave students feeling overwhelmed, tense and stressed.

Developing good study habits is a great way to succeed. Start by finding a quiet and comfortable place (like your local library), setting up your perfect study space, break your studying down into smaller tasks, take regular breaks to drink fluids and refuel, play with a pet, and ask for help with anything you’re unsure about.

The library is here to help during exam season. Participate in these programs and take advantage of resources to find your success.

Exam Cram extended hours for students:

  • Jan. 23 to 26: open until 10 p.m. (Georgetown Branch)
  • Jan. 24 to 26: open until 10 p.m. (Acton Branch)
  • Jan. 28: open until 7 p.m.
  • Jan. 29: open early at 10 a.m.

During extended hours for Exam Cram, the library will be offering free kits for any high school student studying in the library. These kits include study essentials, such as a highlighter, pen, pencil, cue cards, sticky notes, earplugs, and more.

Pick up your Exam Cram kit in Georgetown from Jan. 23 to 29, after 8 p.m. and in Acton from Jan. 24 to 29 after 8 p.m.

Studying in a noisy environment is hard, so this year there’s a contest for a chance to win a pair of Loop earplugs. To enter, post photos of yourself studying in the library (Acton or Georgetown branch) or attending one of the Exam Cram programs.

Ways to enter:

  • Share on Instagram (story or post), tag the library and use the hashtag #hhplExamCram
  • Share on the HHPL Youth Discord Server under the Exam Cram channel

Take a “paws” from studying and hang out with some cute therapy dogs from St. John Ambulance in Acton on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 5 p.m. and in Georgetown on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 5 p.m.
