With the new year, comes a new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This website is the place to fill out the form which could get you financial help to attend college. One of the updates to the FAFSA this year is that it allows applicants to access their IRS tax information and have it automatically inserted into the FAFSA. However, be aware that the FAFSA web site (www.fafsa.ed.gov) is being updated and will be unavailable the following dates: Sunday, Dec. 30 from 12 a.m. ET through 7 p.m. ET; and Monday, Dec. 31 from 8 p.m. ET through 1 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 1.
In addition to the FAFSA site, also check out the following electronic resources:
So many places to visit…for free, that it is impossible to choose.
The Villa Park Public Library continues to offer passes to local attractions to its patrons.
The Museum Adventure Pass is a partnership between more than 100 suburban area libraries and numerous local arts and cultural organizations which provides free passes to local museums, zoos and historical sites. The program is designed to enhance
the learning experience for people of all ages through books and other library materials, and to provide access to arts and cultural organizations.
A new sponsor this year is Legoland in Schaumburg. Also included in the available passes are the Brookfield Zoo and Chicago Botanic Garden.
