I've Had A Scathingly Brilliant Idea!

posted Aug 19, 2016, 2:52 PM by North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library

Don’t know why I didn’t think of this before.  Over the years as we’ve had to change/replace computers one of my tasks has been to make sure that the employment websites were put back on the browsers.  Needless to say it was a pain to remember all the sites and make sure that each one was put on each browser on each computer.  Whew, my brain is still spinning.


Well the idea FINALLY implanted itself in my brain that I should centralize all of those sites on the library’s webpage which would make it easier to add them to the browsers.  So here they are, along with some new ones that I followed from the Department of Workforce Development website.


So if you need to file unemployment, are looking for a job, want to explore a different career/profession, or want to upgrade your current skills here’s the place to look.  All of these sites have been bookmarked and are easily accessible through the library’s website:  Claimant Self Service Logon; Indiana Career Connect; Indiana Career Explorer; JAG – Jobs for America’s Graduates; Veterans’ Employment and Training Service; Win Career Readiness Courseware; and WorkOneWorks.


Sometimes I amaze myself!



We're Changing Our Hours!

posted Aug 15, 2016, 11:37 AM by North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library

So I’ve been tantalizing you with a major change coming to the North Judson-Wayne Township Library in September.  It’s something that many of you have asked about in the past. Well here is the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT.

Starting on September 6th we will change our hours.

No we are NOT cutting any hours, in fact we will be open one hour more each week.  What we are doing is opening an hour earlier Monday through Friday and closing an hour earlier Monday through Thursday.  Saturdays will stay the same.

Old Hours

Monday – Thursday = 11a.m. – 8 p.m.                 (9 hours per day = 36 hours)

Friday = 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.                                           (7 hours)

Saturday = 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.                                    (5 hours)

                                                                                                (TOTAL OF 48 HOURS PER WEEK)

New Hours

Monday – Thursday = 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.           (9 hours per day = 36 hours)

Friday = 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.                                   (8 hours)

Saturday = 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.                               (5 hours)

                                                                                         (TOTAL OF 49 HOURS PER WEEK)

Quite a few people in the past have said that if we opened earlier it would save them having to come back into town after they have finished running their morning errands.  And most of our evening patrons come in before 6:30 p.m.

Yes, evening meetings might need to start or end a bit earlier, but hey, who wouldn’t like to have more time to relax at home before bedtime?  And, depending on the season, even catch a bit more daylight (I know the staff will appreciate it).
