If you are unemployed, underemployed or just want a change in your current job, a great place to start is with the Broward County Library. The Libraries Division offers materials and services on all aspects of searching for a job, including interactive online resources, computers with résumé writing, employability skills software and personalized assistance from library staff.
You can take free classes at your local library, too. Brush up on your computer skills. Learn another language. Students can take SAT and ACT prep classes and much more. There are computers you can use and study rooms available. Learn to use an e-reader, like a Kindle or Nook, and check them out for your personal use.
Many libraries have a children’s area and a Friends of the Library store to buy gently worn books. From newborns to seniors, the Broward County Library has something for you. Best of all, it’s totally free. But you’ll need a free library card to do all these great things.
Broward County Library cards are free to anyone who lives, works or goes to school in Broward County as well as free, six-month visitor cards for part-time Broward County residents. Visit any Broward County Library location to get a library card or apply online.
