Unemployment Quick Guide

The library has created a new unemployment quick guide that includes all the questions found on the state and extended federal unemployment application. This guide will make it easier to prepare for filing and allow you to save your work prior to applying for unemployment. 

Please share this with anyone who may need it in the community.

The library building may be closed, but we are still hard at work making sure items and services are available to you online. We know many people are turning to reading during these uncertain times and we are making sure that eBooks and eAudiobooks are readily available for our patrons. If you have used Libby/Overdrive for online materials, you may have noticed we are part of what is called “Washington Anytime Libraries” which is a group that shares digital materials across the state. To ensure our patrons get access to materials quickly, we are currently spending more on our personal collection- meaning MVCL card holders have access to these titles faster.
