April Showers Bring May Flowers

It’s that time of year again when the flowers are blooming and the weather is warming up. Great reason to come to the library to get information on gardening. Are you designing your yard to win the Yard of the Month in your neighborhood? When is a good time to plant vegetables? Have you prepared the soil properly? We can help.

And don’t forget the Green Thumb Master Gardening Series this month is on Saturday, May 17 at 10 am. They will be discussing Insects in Your Garden. Register soon before it's "crawling with" people.

Job Seminar Continues on Monday

Our month of job assistance got of to a great start last week with our Steps to Starting Your Own Business seminar.  (Did you miss it?  Don't worry, we'll have another one on May 17th.)  It continued this past Monday with our session on resumes, cover letters, and applications.  If you've missed any of them, don't worry, it's not too late to jump in there and join us!

This Monday, April 28 at 10 AM, Texas Workforce Solutions will be here to continue the series with the next seminar, Networking & Using Social Media.  Learn the ins and outs of networking to find your next job as well as how to properly use social media websites such as LinkedIn and more.  All this in a 2 hour class.

Of course, we do ask that you sign up for these and other classes offered here at the library.  You can register by clicking here now.
