5 Share and Gather Resources - statewide With support from the New Jersey State Library, we shared the Virtual Career Center template statewide with other libraries through Jersey Connect. This statewide sharing provides each library the ability to edit the content and links within the template to include local resources and job opportunities. This allows each library the ability to address the specific career needs of their community.

10 IN THEIR OWN WORDS …I attended the Back to Work course and it was very informative. Linda Nunmacher I was unemployed after 22 yrs at the same job and was computer illiterate. (A staff member )put me at ease and showed me the basic skills computer program, and helped me set up . Ive gotten 2 jobs online since then and I am connected to friends and family around the country. Thank you Library of Long Branch. Sherri Alberts Just wanted to come back and say it works! I got the job thanks to your Back to Work classes. Sam Metuchen This computer class has been great at helping people…could not ask for a better staff. PLEASE keep up this work! Henry Dean
