Whitman: Library working to help job-seekers

Are you looking for work? The Whitman Public Library may be able to help. This past fall the library received a grant through a program called “libraries for job seekers”– and they are starting to see results.

According to the state’s application, libraries had to create a program for job seekers, and they had to show how their library can make a critical difference in the lives of constituents looking for work.

Samantha Duckworth, Whitman’s Adult Services and Reference Librarian, said the application process was extensive. But it was worth it: Duckworth said everyone from the area communities is welcome to take part in their long list of programs and workshops.

Visit WhitmanPublicLibrary.org, or call (781) 447-7613 to learn more about their programs.
