Job Seekers Workshop
The RI Department of Labor and Training is partnering with the Office of Library and Information Services to offer a free netWORKri workshop for job seekers. Seating is limited so please pre-register.
The workshop provides job seekers with an online tour of EmployRI.org, the state's virtual career center. EmployRI.org allows users to search hundreds of area job postings, to build and post résumés for recruiting employers to view, and to research Rhode Island's in-demand occupations and industries. Registered users can also learn how to set up a virtual recruiter function that screens new job openings according to a user's unique specifications and then sends the matching job openings directly to the user's email address.
To register, please call (401) 721-1819. Workshop seating is limited.
More About Rogers Free Library
Since 2008 the Rogers Free Library has grown from a cramped 6,200-sq-foot building to a fully renovated 28,000-sq-foot community resource. In addition to the recent facelift, the library also offers many new resources and features to those who wish to take advantage of them. The new improved building hosts more than 80,000 publications and is still growing. It is also newly equipped with a community meeting room that can fit 80 people free of charge (but must be reserved in advance).
The Children's Room is located on the bottom floor, complete with computers, board games, a play area and, of course, books. The library runs a movie series and programs for children.
The second floor is home to fiction and young adult books, VHS, DVDs, audiobooks, local newspapers and magazines. There are also 41 public use computers.
The third floor is for adult services, non-fiction and reference titles. There is also a special collections room that contains local histories, genealogies and historical issues of the Bristol Phoenix.
Your library card no longer means you can simply check out books. Your OSL card now opens endless online possibilities, including accessing your account online and allowing you to download books to your computer at home.
