The Baton Rouge Room and the Career Center, both formerly at the River Center Branch Library downtown, are now at the Main Library at Goodwood.
The Career Center serves employees who are being terminated, those seeking new skills and responsibilities in the current workplace, those just entering or re-entering the work force, and those looking to change careers. Visit the Career Center website for details on the services offered, upcoming events, and more. The Career Center is located on the first floor of the new Main Library and is open on Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. but may be subject to change. Up-to-date schedules will be posted on the Career Center door and on the Career Center Facebook page. The career coach is also available by appointment so please see the website for contact information.
The Baton Rouge Room is located on the second floor (Adult Reference). Check out the Baton Rouge Room InfoGuide and its Digital Library for more on the collections offered in Baton Rouge’s very own city archives. The Baton Rouge Room is currently staffed Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. but the hours will be expanding soon. We are not a browsing collection so it is best to call ahead and discuss your research needs before you arrive to make sure we have what you are looking for. Check the reading room policy for further information.
We hope to see you soon!
