Library hosting career spotlight series


With graduation dates on the horizon, the Hillsboro library is hoping to help patrons on their career journeys with a special program series.

“Our Career Spotlight presentations will highlight 10 different careers,” said library circulation manager Sarah Davidson. “These will happen throughout April and May and will give juniors and seniors, as well as other patrons interested in new career paths, the chance to learn about various jobs. We are so grateful to the volunteers who are coming to talk about their careers. The library posted on Facebook that we were planning a special series like this and the response was overwhelming. Our available dates filled up very quickly, and we are so thankful to everyone who responded. We really hope we’ll get big crowds for these programs.”
