The Wyomissing Public Library will offer two free virtual programs , on Tuesday, November 17th and Thursday, November 19th.
On November 17th at 6 PM, college coach and consultant Myrna Fuchs will explain the college application process, how to choose a college, how to figure out whether it is affordable and how to pay for it, what to include in your personal essay and what to do once you’ve been accepted. This program is open to the public and is geared primarily to 11th and 12th grade students and their parents. Ms. Fuchs has a long history of helping students and parents figure out the college puzzle maze, as an educator and in a non-profit setting.
On November 19th Native American Darius Puff, whose native name is Silver Wolf, will speak about the Leni Lenape and their history, culture and society in this area of Pennsylvania. Puff is a retired Chief of Police in Boyertown whose interest in his Native American heritage led him to study their history and pass it on to those who aren’t familiar with those who were here before the Europeans. He has done presentations at the Conrad Weiser and Daniel Boone Homesteads and at area colleges, including Kutztown University and Reading Area Community College. November is Native American Heritage Month.
Both programs are free and open to the public. They will be held via Zoom, and registration is required. To register, call the Wyomissing Public Library at 610-374-2385, or email [email protected].
