When can I take my exam?
Test proctoring is available Monday through Friday from 9am to 8:30pm and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. There is no proctoring on Sunday or during the last three weeks of December.
My test needs to be taken online. Can you help me?
Yes. The computers for adults (over 15) are on the fourth floor. You can stop in at any time and we will get you on a computer. We can only sign you up for an hour: if you need more time, ask the Reference staff.
I have a paper test. How does that work?
We can book a private study room on the fourth floor for you. Call or email Gwen LaCosse to do so (see above). The library staff cannot stay in the room with you, but they will check on you every so often during the exam period.
My school has to mail/email the exam or information about the exam. Who do they send it to?
Send it to:
Des Plaines Public Library
1501 Ellinwood Street
Des Plaines, IL 60016
Where is the Des Plaines Public Library located?
