Workforce Development

Social Service Referral

Libraries have become technological gateways for the public. 

As government information and services move online and the job-market becomes an increasingly digital space,  the importance of public Internet access points has grown exponentially. 

Libraries offer communities important access to employment and electronic government (E-Government) resources by providing free access to: 

  • Computers.
  • High-speed Internet.
  • Technical assistance.

Job-seekers can use these resources to:

  • Find job openings.
  • Work on resumes.
  • Apply for jobs online. 

The E-Government roles public libraries play are particularly important for users who:

  • Do not have high-speed Internet or computer access in the home.
  • Lack the technology skills that E-Government websites require.
  • Have difficulty understanding and using E-Government services.
