Surprise! The Friends of the Library have decided to continue their extreme sale prices on used books into the New Year. The bargains will continue for an undisclosed length of time. Come and shop the great selection of materials. Remember that illustrations from old and outdated books can be used for crafting purposes, collages, etc. Get creative and find a new use for these items.
The Tennessee Career Coach will again visit Adams Memorial Library on Thursday, January 5, 2012. The coach will be here from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Staffers are anxious to help you overcome employment challenges. The best part is that this is a totally free service. You do not need to make an appointment in advance.
What’s on the coaches?
The mobile units are set up as computer lab classrooms, each having 10 workstations that are equipped with a laptop with high-speed Internet connection. At one end of the coach is the instructor’s workstation that is connected to a 42” flat-screen TV with SmartBoard® overlay and a DVD/CD player. The coaches are equipped with a wheelchair lift, and the workstations are ADA compliant.
Coaches will help jobseekers
“The mobile units serve multiple purposes,” said Lynn Gibbs, coordinator for the middle Tennessee coach. “Job applicants can register for work and search available openings online. They can also take part in the three workshops we offer – résumé preparation, job search skills, and interviewing skills.”
The Staff and Volunteers of the Cannon County Library System wish all of you the happiest of New Years!
