Presenter: Robyn Saunders

Format: Facilitated Discussion

Types of libraries:

  • Seeking employment

Subjects:

  • Adult Services

  • Public Services
  • Professional Development
  • Outreach Services

Additional comments: This Conversation is more than just creating resumes and assisting our patrons with email setup.

Unemployed patrons often come to the Library for resources regarding employment. 

This proposal presents an opportunity for us to discuss effective ways for libraries to reach out to Community Partners, Local Employers and Non-Profit and Faith-based organizations to come together to assist patrons with getting back into the Workforce.

As we continue, to support our patrons,  with refining and implementing their career goals, develop their skills sets and broaden their horizons.
