Spring programs are popping up like daffodils here at Skidompha Library.
In addition to our upcoming Owl Cinema films and our resume writing workshop, I am pleased to announce that Skidompha Library has accepted Lincoln Academy’s challenge for a chess championship throwdown. LA’s best will go pawn-to-pawn with Skidompha’s champion on Friday, April 13 from 3-5 p.m. To celebrate, we’re turning the whole event into a game afternoon. Come to watch the masters, and take in some friendly competition yourself with a variety of games and refreshments.
Now, the only thing left to do is find our chess champion. Could it be you? If you think you’ve got what takes to defend the honor of our library, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Fame and fortune await!
Have a great week,
A resume writing workshop comes to Skidompha. Are you a teen looking to get a jump on summer job searches? Come join our resume writing workshop!
In addition to teaching you all the tips and tricks for standing out in a crowd and listing your unique skills and experience, we will cover interview dos and don’ts, cover letters, and the all-important follow-up thank you!
This is an event not to be missed, and space is limited, so please sign up early. For questions or to register, please email Torie DeLisle, director of development, at email@example.com. This two-day course will run Monday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 25 from 3-6 p.m. in the library’s Porter Meeting Hall.
