The past few days have been a flurry of activity preparing not only for the opening of the center, but also for computer classes that were scheduled to take place at 9:30 this morning in the center. Mary Boone referred to the center as a “showcase” job center for other libraries, and congratulated the efforts of library staff for continuing to innovate to meet the needs of the public, especially during what has been a challenging financial year not only for libraries but also for those who need us most in the community.

The Job Help Center will be open during Main Library hours, M-Th 9-9, F-Sat. 9-6 and Sun. 9-1.
