“Most employers automatically turn to LinkedIn to research potential job candidates and a recent poll said that 89% of companies plan to recruit through LinkedIn. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, you may miss out on some valuable job search opportunities.
This fast-paced program takes you through the steps needed to design a strong, complete, “All Star” LinkedIn profile. You will create an accounting of your work experience including a Summary Statement, Experience, Skills, Education, and Outside Activities. You will also learn the technique needed to be seen on the first three pages of a LinkedIn People Search.
This class is for job seekers, and is not appropriate for those with limited computer skills. Attendees will not be instructed or assisted with basic computer navigation. Please review our basic computer class offerings if you are unsure of your computer skills.
Enrollment is strictly limited and you will need to bring a laptop or tablet to the session. A limited number of library laptops may be available for use with advance arrangements.”

Don’t forget to register for our next two movies, The Monuments Men and Philomena! Click on the blue links below to do so.
Friday, May 23, 2 – 4 PM : The Monuments Men
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action drama focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. As the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements. Rated PG-13 for some images of war violence and historical smoking; 172 minutes.
Friday, June 6, 2 – 3:45 PM : Philomena
Based on the investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, Philomena focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock—something her Irish-Catholic community didn’t have the highest opinion of—and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn’t allow for any sort of inquiry into the son’s whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

“Billie Breslin has traveled far from her California home to take a job at Delicious, the most iconic food magazine in New York and, thus, the world. When the publication is summarily shut down, the colorful staff, who have become an extended family for Billie, must pick up their lives and move on. Not Billie, though. She is offered a new job: staying behind in the magazine’s deserted downtown mansion offices to uphold the “Delicious Guarantee”-a public relations hotline for complaints and recipe inquiries-until further notice. What she doesn’t know is that this boring, lonely job will be the portal to a life-changing discovery.
Delicious! carries the reader to the colorful world of downtown New York restaurateurs and artisanal purveyors, and from the lively food shop in Little Italy where Billie works on weekends to a hidden room in the magazine’s library where she discovers the letters of Lulu Swan, a plucky twelve-year-old, who wrote to the legendary chef James Beard during World War II. Lulu’s letters lead Billie to a deeper understanding of history (and the history of food), but most important, Lulu’s courage in the face of loss inspires Billie to come to terms with her own issues-the panic attacks that occur every time she even thinks about cooking, the truths about the big sister she adored, and her ability to open her heart to love.”–Goodreads.com
Our staff member was lucky enough to get their hands on an advanced reading copy, and they devoured this in less than a day. Now, they can’t stop talking about it. A great vacation read, or one for that stage before the end of the year where you need a distraction but not one that requires a lot of brain power like Neal Stephenson.
