Looking for a job? Whether or not you have an interview lined up, it can’t hurt to be prepared! Lucky for you the library has free job-seeker classes, and this month our topic is interviewing:

Effective Interview Skills
Tuesday, July 17 from 2:00 – 3:30 PM in the Bennett Room
In this workshop lecture, a job search specialist will show you how to prepare for a successful job interview.  Learn to confidently present yourself, your job background, education, experience and the special skills you can bring to your desired position.

This program is presented by the Tri-Valley One-Stop Career Center in partnership with the Dublin Library.  No appointment is needed, but please arrive on time.

If you haven’t yet signed up for Alameda County’s Summer Reading Game, well, where have you been?! Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to sign up and start reading or doing activities to earn prizes (including a free book!).

This year, back by popular demand, is our paper bingo game for kids. For every thirty minutes children read, they can color in a circle. For each colored-in circle, they can come in to the library and spin a spinner and mark their gameboard. A bingo earns children their first prize: a nifty canvas bag to decorate, passes to two local science centers plus Lego Land, and a puzzle eraser. They will also automatically be entered in our weekly drawings for an extra prize.  When they fill in the whole bingo card, they earn their final prize: a free book from our prize cart!

We also have a different paper game for pre-readers that includes fun age-appropriate activities, and a “passport” reading log for teens and adults inspired by this year’s theme, “Reading Takes You Everywhere.” Come in to the library to find out more.

Out of town and can’t come in to the library? No worries, you can do a different summer program fully online. Just register at summer.aclibrary.org and track the amount of time you read. Pre-readers get their final prize after logging 5 hours of reading, and all other ages can get their final prizes after logging 30 hours of reading. You can only do one game (paper OR online) per person. The Dublin Library’s summer reading game ends on Saturday, August 11, 2018.

But wait, there’s more… we also have fun activities at the library during the summer including:

A puppet show for pre-schoolers on Wednesday, July 18 at 10:00 a.m.
Family Board Game night for all ages on Tuesday, July 24 at 6:00 p.m.
A ‘tween art program on Tuesday, July 31 at 1:00 p.m.
Stamp Carving for adults on Thursday, August 2 at 2:00 p.m.

All of these events have limited space available. There are no pre-registrations, so come early to secure your spot. Check the Events link on the Dublin website or call the library at 925-803-7252 for more information.

One last tip: Our prize book selection gets slimmer as the summer goes on, so if you’ve been sitting on your completed gameboard then now’s the time to get up, come visit us, and redeem your prizes!  Hope to see you here soon, and Happy Reading everyone!
