Libraries: Not Just for Books, Part II

The following is the second part in a five part series on services offered at the library that most people might not think about when they think of their local library (or librarian!)

You might think that current authors trying to make a living would not appreciate library patrons that read books "for free". (Hey, we like to reduce and reuse!) However, you can find them at book readings and signings in branches across the system. Many will have their books available for sale at this time, of course!

60 Seconds & You're Hired! 3rd Edition

Right in line with the economic times, Redmond Regional will host Robin Ryan of "60 Seconds and You're Hired" fame on February 3rd at 7 p.m. KCLS invites you to: "Meet this Career Counselor, Bestselling Author, Job Search Expert and National Speaker who writes a syndicated career column and has appeared on over 1000 TV and radio shows including Oprah, Dr. Phil and NBC Nightly News. Her recently updated book will guide you to the perfect job by helping you excel at the crucial job interview and to negotiate a higher salary."

Not only does the King County Library System host authors in the Library, has interviews recorded for your listening pleasure 24/7.j0432650[1]

Recent interviews feature David Oliver Relin (Three Cups of Tea) and Jennifer Worick (Backcountry Betty).
