New database for job seekers

GlassDoor, the world’s most transparent career community, is changing the way that people find jobs, and companies recruit top talent. Its growing database of 6 million company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, office photos and more offers job seekers the type of inside information that is usually impossible to come by without knowing current or former employee. Lucky for job seekers, that’s exactly who provides GlassDoor with all of its information!

Add to that the latest jobs and the ability to see Inside Connections at companies via your Facebook network — no other community allows you to see which employers are hiring, what it’s really like to work there according to employees, and who you may know at a particular company all in one place. Glassdoor is also available via its mobile app on iOS and Android platforms…

BCCLS Scavenger Hunt

BCCLS (Bergen County Cooperative Library System) is celebrating its 35th birthday!

In 1979, libraries across Bergen County joined together to form a cooperative. The cornerstone of BCCLS was then and is now resource sharing, enabling residents to use their hometown library cards in other BCCLS libraries – giving them access to over 5,000,000 items.

BCCLS has grown. There are now 75 member libraries with 79 locations in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties. With over 650,000 cardholders and over 11 million items circulated annually, BCCLS has expanded in a big way. Cardholders at BCCLS libraries can borrow books, movies, magazines, music, video games, and more. They can access premium content databases, e-books, and downloadable audiobooks anywhere they are connected. Library users of all ages can participate in a wide range of diverse library programming. BCCLS libraries offer more than ever before!

As a way of celebrating BCCLS’ birthday, the Rochelle Park Public Library is participating in a summer scavenger hunt from July 1 through August 31.

Visit 10 different BCCLS libraries, find the “35” in each library, receive a stamp on your entry form and be entered in our raffle. There will be two winners picked from eligible entries – one adult (18 and over) and one for those 17 and under. The prize in each category will be an American Express Gift Card. Collect stamps on the Scavenger Hunt from 35 different libraries and you will be entitled to 2 entries!

Come have fun, explore new libraries, and join us in saying “Happy Birthday” to BCCLS!

Summer reading kick off on Monday, June 23

FizzBoomRead

Readers of all ages are invited to join us on Monday, June 23 at 5:30 pm as we kick off our 2014 Rochelle Park Library Summer Reading Program. For the second year in a row, entertainment at our kick off party will be provided by magician Mark “Wow Mark” Zacharia. All children in attendance will receive two free gifts: one from the magician and one from the library!

This year’s themes are “Fizz, Boom, Read!” for participants ages 0 through grade 6, “Spark a Reaction” for teens, and “Literary Elements” for adults. Registration begins on Monday, June 23 and can be done in person or online. All children who participate in summer reading will receive a goody bag simply for registering (kick off party attendees will receive their bag at the party and those who register online may pick one up on their next library visit), and teens and adults who participate will be entered in a drawing for gift cards to local businesses.

Summer reading will conclude on Thursday, August 14, with a decorate-your-own cupcake social.
