Residents of District 14 and all of Southwest Louisville, who are looking for a job, now have a familiar resource at their disposal to help in the search. The Southwest Library is opening up a Job Shop on Tuesday, June 7th.

“The Southwest Library already is so important to residents in our area with its education programs for children and adults,” says Councilman Bob Henderson (D-14). “Now the branch is going one step further by offering its technical resources and assistance to unemployed members of our community.”

Henderson will join Mayor Greg Fischer on Tuesday, June 7th when the library opens its new Job Shop at 10:30am. The Job Shop provides computers, resources, trained staff and more than 600 square feet of space dedicated to job searching activities. The service is free and available to anyone during the operating hours of the branch.

“To someone who may not have access to a computer or the know how to search the internet for job openings, this can make a real difference,” says Henderson. “I am so pleased to see how our libraries adjust to helping the community.”

This is the second Job Shop operated by the Louisville Free Public Library. The first is located at the Main Branch on York Street.

For more information about the Southwest Library Job Shop, call the branch at 933-0029.
