DW – Career Counseling (LTTC)

Thinking of changing career paths or getting ready to start working? Come meet with a trained career counselor for free and discuss your options!

Dalton-Whitfield will be partnering with trained counselors to provide Career Counseling to all area residents: Fridays, 10am – 4pm March 21st – June 27th.

The counseling is free, open to everyone, and registration is not required.

If you aren’t sure what kind of career you want to start, have a career and want to change, or just want to explore your options, this counseling might be for you!

When you come in, you will need to complete a written form and an online career assessment through GA College 411, before you meet briefly with a career counselor to figure out which of the three colleges in the area (Chattahoochee Tech, Dalton State, or Georgia Northwestern Tech) will be the best to help you meet your new career goals.

Cody Holloway is coming to teach us a little about robots and then to guide us through the process of making one.

Artist Tammy Pryce will be here to show everyone how to make art out of clay. What do you want to make? A Harry Potter Wand? A Sonic Screwdriver? A Dragon?

DW – Closing for PINES Update

The system the library uses to check out books will be down starting Thursday at 6pm and will remain down through the holiday weekend. As the library will be unable to check in or out materials during that time, it will be closed. We are sorry for any inconvenience this might cause. As usual, books may be turned into the drop boxes during that time. The online PINES catalog and account login will be unavailable from Thursday at 6pm until Tuesday the 21st.

Please note, the teen movie at 4:30 will still be showing. You must use the meeting room entrance to the left of the main entrance. We hope to see you there!
