Does Your Library Double as a Job Center?

The public are invited to share their experiences and insights with Marketplace, a public radio program, for an upcoming segment on the use of public libraries. Marketplace is particularly interested in how libraries have responded to the ongoing unemployment issues facing the nation.

Perhaps you’re a job seeker who is spending hours on your library’s computers looking for work. Or maybe you’ve used the library’s computers to complete a resume and update your portfolio. If you are seeing opportunities like these or other changes in the way your library is providing service in this recession, tell Marketplace about it here.

Marketplace is public radio’s daily magazine show on business and economics. Produced by American Public Media and heard by 8 million listeners each week, the Marketplace group of programs includes Marketplace, Marketplace Morning Report, and Marketplace Money.
