Teen 80's Night, Monday, August 17

Teens (13-18) are invited to our first annual 80's Night, on Monday, August 17, from 6-9 p.m.. We'll watch a classic 80's movie, maybe a TV show, and dance(?) to some great music. Dress the part--shoulder pads, leg warmers, big sunglasses! Because the Library will be closed at 9, you can get picked up at the Youth Library Door. Call 978-829-1780 to register, or for more info. Bring $3 for pizza if you can.

Check out the Library's new Resume Software

Looking for work, or to change jobs? The library has recently purchased WinWay Resume Builder software that will write and format your resume, and even audit your existing resume for common mistakes.

Resume Builder has been installed on all the Library's public computers, and can be used free of charge. Bring your Library card and a flash drive, or you can email your resume to yourself from the Library. Thanks to Staples for the grant that made this purchase possible.
