DOTHAN, AL---Erica Severson spends a few days a week in front of the computer at the library.

"It's the only place I can go and sit on the computer for more than an hour and actually fill out job applications," said erica Severson.

She says, today she stopped by for a specific reason.

"I came in to update my resume," said Severson.

Donna Crescenzi is a computer lab instructor at the library.
She says Erica isn't the only person who uses the library to search for jobs.

"I would say on an average day we might have a dozen people come in just looking for jobs or composing their resume."

The library offers a free "job search" class twice a month to library card holders.

"We help people compose their resume, post their resumes online. We also give them websites for many of our local employers,"said Crescenzi.

Erica says she's thankful to have the free resources while she looks to land her next job.

"I try to keep a current one so that way when someone calls me for a job I'll have it."

Those "job search" classes are open to the public.
You can register for the course online through the Houston- Love Memorial Library's website.
