AmeriCorps: Library Employment Seeking Assistance

With this stimulus funding, the city's AmeriCorp program will support the Richmond Public Library and its staff by providing AmeriCorps members to help recruit and work with volunteers for service at the Main Library and branches. The Volunteers will assist job-seeking patrons with limited or no computer experience in utilizing library resources for employment searches and applying for unemployment benefits. The Library is currently overwhelmed with such patrons, a situation that taxes the Library staff's ability to assist other patrons. Project partners include AmeriCorps, the Volunteer Connection, and the Richmond Public Library, along with Goodwill Industries.
