Join Gary Gekow Tuesday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m. on how to answer the question, "Tell me about yourself?"
Job applicants should welcome this question with open arms, as it gives them a beautiful chance to talk about themselves in the most positive light. The question is very general and most people have no idea where to start, what to include and when to end their answer.
The workshop is very interactive, and people leave the program with a new found confidence about themselves. Gekow is a senior employment specialist with 21 years of recruiting experience in the Boston staffing industry.
Book club for grades two and three
The book club for second and third grade meets once a month to discuss books and engage in activities related to the book. We often get a bit silly!
October's book is about the wacky and hilarious "Bad Kitty Gets a Bath" by Nick Bruel. Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 3:45 p.m. Snacks are provided.
Copies are available from the Children's Room staff. The club is open to all in grades two and three who have read part of the book, or had it read to them. We meet in the larger program room, just beyond the puzzle and stained-glass windows of the Children's Room.
Terri Stano, director of Thayer Public Library, submits this column with contributions from staff librarians. The goal is to highlight events,
programs, materials and people associated with the library and its services.
