Spring fine-tuning at APL

As spring approaches, one tends to think of certain spring-type and anti-winter activities.

Activities like cleaning and oiling various garden tools and machinery, or digging through that cluttered back closet to sort through which pairs of walking shows are still trail-worthy and – if you’re one of the many Albertans looking for work – fine-tuning your resume to create greater interest from employers.

Airdrie Public Library (APL) can help you with all these projects. We have books on garden tool maintenance, and even on how to organize that nasty back closet.

We also have a very cool online resource available with your free APL card called Cypress Resume, which can help you write a great resume.

Though you may know you’re the best person for the job, translating that to a winning resume can be difficult. Cypress Resume is an online resume builder that helps you create a professional resume, cover letter or reference sheet in three steps.

The resource uses an easy process, broken down into simple steps that allow you to view, download, edit or delete any saved documents. Just log into our website, go to the eResource tab and in a few minutes you will have a great-looking, well-written resume. The resource is also great for patrons with limited computer and writing skills

While you’re logged into the APL website, you might also want to check out APL’s classy online resource for choosing books for your preschooler. Called Great Books for Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers, this free resource is designed to help parents select books that meet their child’s needs and abilities, specifically for children newborn to five years old.

APL librarians take the guesswork out of choosing, saving you time, by selecting the books.
