Learning Express

>

Are you looking for a job? In this economy many people are.  Libraries can help you get ready to rejoin the workforce.
If it’s been awhile since you applied for a job, or interviewed for one, take a look at Learning Express.  You can use this service in the library or from home. (It is one of several subscription online services that the libraries subscribe to for your benefit.) You set up an account, using your library barcode number, and your own PIN. You can log in and save your work and return to it later.
There are many practice tests on many subjects for both children and adults. One section of particular interest to job seekers is Job Search and Workplace Skills. Included is information on improving writing and communications skills, resume and interviewing tips. Good information whether you are new or already in the workforce.

The libraries offer classes on using Learning Express as well as basic computer classes for adults.  In March classes are held in Bradford County, classes in April in Union County, and in May in Baker County (Emily Taber Public Library.)

Happy New Year!

>In the U.S., New Year’s Day is becoming a time to relax and recover from the previous holidays. Morning hours can include watching the spectacular Rose Bowl Parade on television and later seeing the game.

Americans generally ignore the good luck shenanigans that are popular in other countries. But a large percentage of us still think we can cook and eat our way to a prosperous new year.

Corned beef and cabbage is one lucky choice because cabbage leaves signify money in this and other cultures. Many people think pork should be included in the New Year’s meal. For hundreds of years, the hog has signified prosperity. Black-eyed peas, hog jowls or ham are lucky foods in some areas as is rice.

Making New Year’s resolutions is an admirable New Year’s Day activity. One to include this year are more visits and use of your public library.

The new year brings another series of programs for adults at libraries in the three county area.

Computer classes for adults start in January at Union Co. Public Library. Basic classes on learning to use a computer and some intermediate classes will be offered.
In addition, as part of this series of classes, we will teach a series on using Learning Express, an online program that can help you brush up on job and interview skills. Assistance will also be offered on filling out government forms online.

The class series for adults repeats in February in Baker County, and in March in Bradford County. Check your library for a schedule or look (and register) online under Library Events on our webpage.
