Congratulations to the Library on its receipt of a Project BEST (Basic Employment Skills Training) grant! The Library plans to use the funds to help job seekers improve their basic computer literacy skills and assist food handlers who need to take the mandatory training and assessment on food handling.
Librarian Mary Hanel says, “We are excited about Project BEST, our grant-funded project to meet these needs and help people needing assistance with the training and test for the California State required Food Handling card.”
The Foundation & Friends is supporting this effort by supplying the librarians with three laptops. The librarians will use the laptops to better serve those jobseekers who need one-on-one assistance either due to lack of computer literacy skills or lack of English skills.
