Learning Express

>If you need to get started in working on GED testing, ASVAB testing, or brushing up on job skills such as resumes and interviewing, Learning Express, an online database, is for you.

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.

Books to help in job searching

>Many of our fellow citizens are looking for jobs. Times are tough. The libraries have added books to help job seekers with their job search. Take a look at these new titles:

  • Military to civilian career transition guide by Janet Farley.
  • What color is your parachute? 2010 by Richard Bolles.
  • Blue collar & proud of it by Joe Lamacchia.
  • Job Interview tips for people with not-so-hot backgrounds by Caryl and Ron Krannich.
  • Next day job interview by Michael Farr.

These are just a few of our new titles in the resume and interview area. Check the 650.14 non-fiction section or ask a staff member for assistance.

The library also has classes for adults using Learning Express.  The job skills section will help you brush up on basic reading and math skills, and includes some resume and interview help.  You can take part in the class (register here) or use Learning Express on your own.  You’ll need your library card number to set up an account.

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.

New this time are classes using Learning Express. Learning Express is a computer program to assist you in preparation for tests or refreshing job search skills. We’re focusing on adults who would like assistance in brushing up on your job search skills–basic math, reading and writing. We’ll help you get started.

We continue to offer assistance with e-government questions. If you have to fill out government forms online–such as DCF, unemployment or other government benefits, we’ll help you get started.
