Job Center at the Library

As a way to kick off the new “Job Center at the Library”,  one-stop held and assistance for job seekers locally and conveniently, a representative from the Missouri Career Center in Kennett will be visiting the library on the last Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. until noon. This will allow local residents an easy way to register for benefits and fill out applications for area employment. The Kennett MO Unemployment/ Career Center Office provide individuals seeking employment all the latest tools to find and keep that special job.

Employers also find assistance there in recruiting new employees including a national job listing network, applicant screening, and space in the centers to conduct testing and employment interviews.

The Job Center at the Library also includes a number of new books covering all aspects of a job search and eventual employment, including resumes, interviews, business writing, and job ettiquette that were purchased through a state grant that will be very beneficial to residents. This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the office of the Secretary of State.

Pemiscot County newspapers now online

The first of our Pemiscot County newspapers have been digitized and are being added to our library’s website in the “Online Resources” tab. This project was supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State. An LSTA Digital Imaging grant was applied for by Caruthersville Public Library and supported with letters by several community residents.

The papers currently online are:
The Critic (from 1/1/1915 – 5/7/1915) Hayti, MO newspaper

The Gayoso Democrat (from 11/6/1891-12/25/1891) Gayoso, MO newspaper

The Pemiscot Argus (from 1907-1921) Caruthersville, MO newspaper

The Democrat-Argus and the Twice-a-week Democrat (from 1/26/1900 – 12/29/1966)

The Hayti Herald is digitized from 1908-1922 and is freely available on the Library of Congress’s website, Chronicling America. This paper was digitized as part of a national grant in 2008-2010.

Other more recent years of the Hayti Herald are currently being digitized, as well as editions of the Steele Enterprise. These will be online later next year.

The Democrat-Argus from 1892-1966 should be delivered on Tuesday and we will get it on the website as soon as possible.

To easily read parts of these newspapers, look for the small newspaper icon in the upper left and click onto various portions of the newspaper page to read it more easily.

Other more recent years of the Hayti Herald are currently being digitized through a second digitization grant, as well as editions of the Steele Enterprise. These will be online later next year.

Thanks to all who helped with this project and for those who have been waiting in anticipation to read these old newspapers – Enjoy!!!
