The Job Help Hub at the Holbrook Public Library is designed to help Navajo County residents find a job, learn or improve workforce skills, or open their own business. To those ends, the library is offering computers with extended computer time so that residents will be able to improve their employment situation. The computers include a Virtual Workforce Workstation with its own printer/scanner, 10 laptop computers complete with their own printer/scanner and an instructor offering free classes, in addition to open lab time for one on one instruction.

If you are doing school work, building a resume, looking for work or managing your own business and need more uninterrupted computer time, come to the Holbrook Public Library and see what the Job Help Hub can do for you. If you would like to improve your computer skills, learn more about social media and how it can work for you, learn more about creating effective resumes or how to impress employers during job interviews, the library has self-paced tutorials, as well as classroom instruction for a variety of learning styles and preferences.

Classes are held at 8:30 and 10 a.m. on Tuesdays, and at 4 and 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. For complete schedules or more information, please call (928) 524-3732 or e-mail holbrookhub@gmail.com.

Funding is provided by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
