Here is an economic impact story from Dobson Community Library/Northwestern Regional Library in Surry County, NC (5th District):

“Jim” is a middle-aged man who was laid off from a local mill. Jim needed a new job, but he was very intimidated by the new computer-based job applications and had minimal computer skills. The library staff helped Jim fill out job applications. The staff also taught Jim basic computer skills. Jim found a new job through a job application submitted at the library, and he is very happy at his new job. He now enjoys using the computer at the library with his new skills. Libraries change lives
