It's all good @ the Library....
Last week Debbie Tindal, who is a Community Employment Specialist at the Department of Social Services, and I went to the Richland County Library to participate in a workforce exchange. This was a great meeting bringing together several libraries as well as state agencies who are concerned with helping South Carolina’s unemployed and underemployed.
Debbie and I have been working informally with her clients for over a year. The clients come to the library for training in resume building, computer skills and job searching. We have had some successes, but this meeting helped show us how we can improve our services, measure our successes and build on the foundation that we have formed. We are both really excited about taking this opportunity and expanding our services; not only to the DSS clients but to the entire community.
