Resume Books

The Job Information Center has books that will help you design a resume.  We have books that give examples of various resumes for specific jobs or careers.  We also have a book that will help you create a resume for your first job or people that are rentering the work force.  One title of a resume book that I found interesting was “The Resume Handbook:How to Writer Outstanding Resume & Cover Letters for Every Situation”.  Come and check out these great resources in the Job Information Center on the fourth floor of the Bausch & Lomb Building.

Stimulus Payment

Everyone has questions about the stimulus payments. This is helpful information that you may find useful, taken directly from the I.R.S. website. The IRS encourages everyone to file by the normal April 15th tax deadline: the sooner, you file the sooner your receive your stimulus payment. If you have obtained a valid six month extension to file or if you are filing to establish your eligibility for the stimulus payment, filing by Oct. 15 means the IRS can process your return and issue a stimulus payment before the end of the year.

Censorship Display

Sunday was the kick-off event for the Big Read: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The “Big Read” is where one community is encouraged to read the same book in a certain amount of time.  The following link describes the events in detail.

The Business and Social Sciences Division has a display of books focusing on Censorship and the 1st Ammendment. Stop in and check it out. 

Small Business Center

We have a Small Business Center at the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County.  The Center has a unique reference collection of over 700 books available on small business topics. These topics include organizing an enterprise, writing a business plan, solving personnel issues, finding a location and obtaining financing.  Additional copies of book titles in the reference collection are available for patrons to borrow. The Small Business Center has a wealth of information, including computer based databases. It is really great for someone just beginning their small business or someone who has been in business for a while. A sole proprietor small business owner recently visited the Center to get ideas on how to grow her business.  She  stated “I have been in business for fourteen years. I should have come here years ago”.
