Central Library Now Offering Free Weekly GED Classes

The Birmingham Public Library is now offering free GED classes weekly at the Central Library downtown in a partnership with Jefferson State Community College.

The classes began January 13, 2020, and are offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thurdays from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the  Regional Library Computer Center (RLCC), 4th Floor, inside the Linn-Henley Research Library, 2100 Park Place.

GED is an acronym for General Educational Development. The GED exam is a series of four tests a person can take in the areas of math, reading/writing, science and social studies to assess their high school academic knowledge.  

GED classes help folks prepare to take the GED test, led by instructors who can identify weaknesses and help strengthen their comprehension.
