Darrington: Library helps job seekers

Darrington Library is among the Sno-Isle Libraries to provide online job search resources.

Sno-Isle Libraries recently received grant money to buy 30 notebook computers to be used by job seekers. The computers provide online resources for skills building and job searches and allows the library to waive the two-hour-a-day computer limit.

Job seekers often need more time for job searching, completing an application, developing a resume, or working to improve their computers skills, library spokeswoman Mary Kelly said.

Along with Darrington, the computers also are available at the Granite Falls, Marysville, Stanwood, Lynnwood, Oak Harbor and Sultan libraries.
