On Tuesday, July 26 and Tuesday, August 2, the Marion Carnegie Library is partnering with Kristin Moore Photography to provide free professional headshot photos to job seekers. Those interested can visit the Marion Carnegie Library or call the library at 618-993-5935 to make a reservation.
The free photos are available through the library’s “Continuing Careers with MCL” program, funded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of the Secretary of State, using funds provided by the US Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). The Continuing Careers program also gives job seekers access to borrowable laptops, mobile internet hotspots, thousands of online courses, and more.
Attendees at professional headshot events are encouraged to dress professionally and avoid clothing with logos, graphics, artwork, and patterns. They should also, if possible, bring a copy of their curriculum vitae. Photos will include digital touch-ups and edits, and entrants will receive a free digital copy of photos after they have been processed.
