Public libraries are seeing increased traffic due the large numbers of unemployed people coming in to use the free services.
A lot of the people coming in are using computers to research and apply for jobs, said Robert Finch, the assistant director of the Rogers (AK) Public Library. There is a time limit on the 60 computers and some folks are exceeding the limit trying to fill out as many applications as they can, Finch said.
If you're unemployed, check with your local library. Many have special resources, including online employer databases and other job search tools, in addition to computers and textbook.
