On May 7th, we offered a full day of workshops devoted to job search, resume, and interview skills at the library. Due to the positive feedback from those who attended, we will announce an upcoming day of workshops in the fall. Our business reference librarian, Jeff provided a list of great resources and links of the various job search sites and their uses.
A question was asked about whether there were any resources available for ex-offenders to return to the workforce. Have you heard of Riley Guide? “It is primarily intended to provide instruction for job seekers on how to use the Internet to their best advantage, but recruiters and other career service industry professional will find information here to help them also.”
Interestingly, you can also find resources for ex-offenders who are looking to return to the workforce.
Here is a quick video of the recent workshop:

His favorite games are chasing his plushy toys around the yard and flushing out squirrels, lizards and other animals on walks. He recently discovered chickens when about 10 of them were wandering around the neighborhood (another story) and thinks they are pretty swell.

OK, I'm Ralph (or some foreign-sounding name I can never figure out) and I thought I was ready for my close-up but you caught me with my eyes closed. Can I have a do-over? No?
I’m seven years old but I look young and handsome because I get that lot, so I think I am. I LOVE food and enjoy a long nap every day. Alright, may two or more long naps every day. And I love a good tennis ball chase. I can chase the ball all day long! Well, except for my nap times. Squirrels? Of course squirrel chasing is good too!

Java is 12 and generally likes taking long naps after a good run. His other big hobby is burying bones in the backyard. He is fairly indulgent with Quincy as he chews on his ears and generally keeps things lively. Pet peeves? Mail carriers and lawn mowers.
