Library Focus: Budget vote, book sale held next week

— If the bait and switch weather is making you a mite grumpy, stop in and check out this month’s Elementary Art Show at the library. The brilliant colors and intriguing projects are sure to put a smile on your face. It’s also a great time to scoop up new fiction and place recent release movies on hold to help ease the transition through the mud season.

Job hunters

The economy continues to improve slowly and we’re here to help you get back into a regular paycheck. We offer help in writing or updating your resume, an introduction to our test prep and career exploration resources and counseling on how to deal with job gaps, layoffs and firings in an interview. Our BTOP grant leader, Nancy Howe, and all our staff are eager to give you a good foundation for your efforts. Call Nancy at 635-5631 to make appointments for one-on-one sessions. In addition, we offer a weekly job hunters meeting at 1 p.m. Thursdays to provide tips and help with morale. The next two meetings are April 19 and 26.

Accelerate your learning curve

Drop in with your laptop or device (iPad, Android, smart phone) from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Friday, April 20, and we’ll help you get started or learn what you need to know. Registration is not needed, but be sure to bring all the needed accessories so we can tackle your dilemma. We’re short one session this month because the book sale has limited meeting room availability, but the program continues into May.

“Heart” strings?

Craft projects continue afternoons or evenings at the library. Pulling Threads meets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, and In Stitches convenes at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 25. Both groups are open to new members and glad to offer advice, space and time for working on your current project.
