Education and Employment Resource Center (EERC)
The Education and Employment Resource Center is a small meeting space that accommodates the library’s education and employment related programs. The EERC is located beyond the circulation desk and the teen room, near the large print book collection. While most EERC programs support job seekers and English language learners, other programs are occasionally offered. Consult this page to see the latest EERC training opportunities and to find links to related resources.

Attention JobNow users: The library’s grant-funded subscription to the JobNow career service will expire on December 31, 2016. If you are a JobNow user, please transfer any resumes, cover letters, or other documents that you may have saved on JobNow’s storage cloud to a usb drive or other storage device. If you aren’t sure how to do this, come see us at the reference desk- we’ll be happy to help. We’ve enjoyed offering JobNow service to our patrons over the past year. Stay tuned for the release of our updated Education & Employment Resource Center website in early 2017, which will direct you to other helpful resources for job seekers.
