Job Seekers

In 2012 the Bellingham Public Library was awarded a federal Institute of Museum and Library Services grant through the  Library Services and Technology Act.  This grant, which was administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, enabled the library to hold programs to help job seekers.

We continue to offer assistance to job seekers in variety of ways.
