I visit the Cypress Hills Library to look for part-time jobs, to search for information on the internet, and to check out a good book. It’s helping me be an entrepreneur.
I don’t have internet access at home. I visit the Parkchester Library for access to the job related laptops, which gives you extra time to complete applications online. I don’t know what I would do if my library wasn’t accessible.
I came to the Career and Education Information Services Office at the Bronx Library Center for resume assistance and found so much more—encouragement, support and guidance. The staff helped me to believe in my skills and abilities once again. I know the right career opportunity is just around the corner.

The Macon Library has been a home to me since I was 15 years old. I come here to study for the GED, or just chill out. I also meet with James. Since he helped me put together my resume, I’ve received two calls about jobs.

I remember needing help with my resume and two of the employees, Leah and Sharon, went out and beyond to help me have the best resume I needed for employment. Well, the following week I was hired at St. Lukes Hospital for an L.P.N. position thanks to Leah and Sharon ensuring my resume was a good one.
The library provides me with knowledge and information. I use the internet for work and job search. There are job fairs for the unemployed and financial seminars for everyone. It is probably the most important local community center that we have on the North Shore of Staten Island.
