With unemployment still high in the United States, the prospects for people looking for employment is discouraging. The Harrison Public Library is not an employment center but it does have the Job Information Center which is located between the Young Adult Fiction area and part of the Adult Biography area. The Job Information Center consists mostly of books but it also has some dvds along civil service job flyers.
These are examples of the many books and DVDs to be found in the Job Information Center:
