The Bandera Library is pleased to announce a new resource available for our community. In partnership with Workforce Solutions Alamo, a WSA kiosk has been installed and is up and running here at the Library.
The kiosk will allow folks to come in and complete the interest forms and have access to live representatives who can connect them to the resources they need.
Workforce Solutions Alamo provides resources to help people get connected with jobs. This includes training, placement and even getting help with childcare.
