Kearny Library recently hosted an open house to celebrate the ribbon cutting of its new Arizona Workforce Connection Access Point. The Arizona Workforce Connection has trained Kearny library staff to help job seekers use this new work station to search for jobs, complete applications, and get help with resumes and preparing for interviews.

Resources provided by the Arizona Workforce Connection and the AWC Access Points include career development, testing & assessments, work experience training, on the job training, educational training (GED) workshops, resume building, referrals to community agencies and more. Learn more on their Resources page.

AWC also provides benefits for employers by reducing hiring costs, employee training, higher retention rates, and a positive public image.

The Kearny Library is pleased to welcome this new addition and believe it will greatly enhance our availability to serve our patrons.
