ELIZABETHTON — Looking for a job, or a little counseling on preparing a resume? The Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library, 201 N. Sycamore St., might be the place for you on Thursday.

The library will have a career coach on the premises to work with those seeking employment. The coach will also provide help with writing an effective resume and other job-related advice.

The coach will be offering the services at the library from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

That free service will be just in time for a job fair that will be held in the library from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The job fair is being held by Advance Call Center Technology and recruiter Matt Dinan.

But the library won’t be all work and no play on Thursday. There will also be a free family program featuring the Trailblazer Cloggers from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

Next week the library will be providing a virtual dementia simulation program on Tuesday, July 17, from 1-4 p.m. The experience will be led by Tracey Kendall Wilson, regional director of Alzheimer’s Tennessee.

The simulation is designed to change your perception of dementia and Alzheimer’s. The library staff said the experience is designed to give participants an insight into why certain dementia/Alzheimer’s “behaviors” occur and a great opportunity for caregivers to successfully meet needs.

To schedule a time for the simulation, call the library at 547-6360.
