Welcome to March! I promise to not mention snow or weather once in this entire newsletter! March can be the best month, especially if you are taking a spring break vacation! Even if you are not going anywhere! We all deserve a break once in a while! So when everyone comes back they are ready to start fresh!
And speaking of a fresh start- the library has a brand new database, Brainfuse. It has two main arteries, JobNow and Vet Now. JobNow is a versatile online service designed to support every step of the job search process. It features live online coaches who assist with resume/cover letter preparation, and helps patrons prepare for job interviews. There is also a great Adult Learning Center with test prep and skill center.
VetNow offers support for our community’s veterans and families with navigating the VA bureaucracy, provides academic tutoring and employment transition assistance. It features online navigators trained to help veterans and families connect with benefits and resources.
These great tools are available now on our webpage. Find the Public Library tab at www.carlisleiowa.org.
