classical guitar

Stephen from Half Moon Bay

Hi neighbours. Does anyone have a classical guitar full size they don't want. Like my son to practice on. No strings, or broken strings is fine, scratches & dents is fine too. Thank you!

Auckland library staff help unemployed

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

People who find themselves jobless as a result of Covid-19 can flock to Auckland libraries for a helping hand.

They can get practical support with their CVs and cover letters, viewing job websites, discussing skill sets or free online training through Lynda.com

Library staff will also connect Aucklanders with skills development, education and training courses.

Auckland Council library staff are being up-skilled to provide employment and skills advice to their communities using the new Work Navigator service piloted by the Te Manawa community hub in Westgate.

The goal is to help people recover from job losses caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The libraries involved in phase 1 of the region wide Work Navigator rollout are Botany, Central City, Glen Eden, Glenfield, Helensville, Māngere East, Manukau, Mt Albert, Mt Roskill, and Ōtāhuhu.

Auckland mayor Phil Goff said the initiative provides extra support for people who may have lost work because of Covid-19.

"The pandemic and resulting recession has caused businesses to close and jobs to be lost in our region," he said.

"We want to do what we can to help Aucklanders find work or gain skills to improve their employment options, and through this programme our libraries staff are well placed to deliver those services."
