GAFNEY ON THE GO - CURBSIDE SERVICE IS HERE!



Easy as 1, 2, 3 - reserve, wait for a call to schedule a pickup appointment, pickup!

Here's how it works


 
GAFNEY LIBRARY ADULT LEARNING CENTER AND HiSET STUDY.


We've reopened to help you study and take the HiSET exam! 

Are things a little different during COVID-19?  Sure, but it's all to keep you and our tutors safe.  So for now we are working on an appointment schedule on Wednesdays between 3:00 and 6:00pm.  Call Rosemary Stewart at 986-1116 to make your one-hour appointment to work with a tutor.  
They all have a truckload of resources to help you.  

We also have a HiSET testing center - so study and test at the same location.  At this point we are only administering the HiSET exam to those who are studying at our center.  Exams are set up by appointment after students pass a pretest in any one of the five areas - science, social studies, math, reading and writing.

Both the tutoring and the HiSET exam are held at the Greater Wakefield Resource Center on Main Street in Union - big white building at the railroad tracks.
