Thanks to a Renew Washington grant from the Washington State Library, the Mount Vernon City Library is offering a great selection of programs to their community in the coming months. It’s always great to see such a direct community benefit from a grant cycle, and in this way the Renew Washington project has been particularly fulfilling.
The programs kick off with a Resume Writing 101 workshop on February 1 and continue with programs on all sorts of topics, from bicycle maintenance and bee-keeping to learning about hidden job markets and managing your money.
From their website:
