Sharing More Than Books

The Saint Paul Public Library is more to our residents than a place to share books. It’s a place to help launch a new business, career, or more. The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library recently launched an awareness campaign with the theme: Because of the Library. This campaign celebrates how Saint Paul learns and thrives—because of the library. Take part in the campaign by using #Becauseofthelibrary to share library stories and celebrate our city’s great library system. Follow the library and its campaign on Facebook. 

The Library’s Mobile WORKplace program is the focus of a newly released Google Stories video, Saint Paul Public Library: Sharing More Than Books. Google Stories features people around the world who demonstrate passion and a desire to improve their communities. Google’s newest video shows how the library serves the critical needs of Saint Paul’s new immigrant communities. Mobile WORKplace staff offer computer access, skills training, and job search assistance at community centers, schools, public housing facilities, and other sites. Classes are offered in Hmong, Somali, Oromo, Karen, Amharic, Spanish, and English.
