KINGSPORT - The Kingsport Public Library is now providing a much needed service to help the public get through the current crisis. Now, reference librarians are available to help you, via Skype, by providing assistance with applying or certifying for employment benefits.

You can register for your own Unemployment Assistance Skype session using the library's website (kingsportlibrary.org) under the “Events” tab. Sessions are available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Librarians can also help you work on your resume, should you find yourself unemployed as a result of this global pandemic.

According a press release on the program, you will need an email address and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a microphone in order to register. You will then be contacted by email to Skype with the librarian at the time you sign up for. A Skype account is not required.

For questions about registration, email referencelibrary@kingsporttn.gov, or call (423) 229-9465 during normal library hours.
