Beth Gordon is an NCDA trained Career Development Facilitator and Heather Martin is the Area Coordinator of Literacy Connections.
These one-on-one sessions will focus on resume and cover letter writing, online job applications, job search resources, and interview preparation. Job hunters should have basic computer skills and bring a copy of their resume if they have one.

From October 12 – 26, The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti will be available as a free digital download for every patron that wishes to read it—no holds, no wait lists.
The Big Library Read (facilitated by OverDrive) is a reading program through the library that connects millions of readers around the world with the same eBook at the same time without any wait lists or holds. By participating in the Big Library Read, we are joining a global movement of passionate readers and library patrons who support the availability of digital materials at libraries.
This time around, the title will be available in both E-Book and E-Audiobook formats – both will be available for instant unlimited access on the MHLS Digital Download page at http://mhls.lib.overdrive.com/ and there will be a promotional spotlight at the top of that page.
Every year millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote. If you turned 18 recently, changed your name, moved, or haven’t voted in recent elections, then you need to update your voter registration.
We’re excited to be part of a national effort to strengthen our community by registering voters. On Tuesday, September 26, also known as National Voter Registration Day, stop by the library during open hours (9am-8pm) to register! We’ll have paper registration forms on-hand and instructions and applications for absentee ballots. Not sure if your registration is up-to-date? We can help with that as well!
