Prospect Park’s branch of the Brooklyn Library system, Central Library, is one of the most incredible libraries in the world. Anybody who has been in there has likely noticed that this place is so much more than a depository for books. It also happens to be an art gallery, a concert hall, a museum, and a school (loosely speaking).
I like to write often about Brooklyn libraries, typically to bring people’s attention to specific events, exhibits, lectures or whatever. Mainly because I suspect that despite how dynamic our libraries are, many if not most brooklynites don’t partake of the glorious splendors the libraries offer.
Central library, for instance, has a number of regularly scheduled monthly workshops for adults to improve job hunting skills and computer skills as well as a number of other skills.
The resume writing workshop is at least one Wednesday every month. The next workshops are currently scheduled for October 27th and November 17th, at 3pm.
In addition, the interview skills workshop is offered twice a month, next on October 20th, and then again November 3rd, at 3pm both days.
On Nov 2nd there is a seminar about getting into the field of financial planning, at 6pm. This talk discusses the field, career strategies, licenses, and how to get started. In case you pictured an elderly librarian reading from a book, you might like to know that this class is taught by the CEO of an accounting and financial services firm.
Suffice to say, these guys don’t mess around.
Check the website to see what everything else that is scheduled.
