It’s a new year, it’s a good time to start thinking about the future and Plano Public Library is here to help you Navigate Your Future!
This February, Plano Public Library will be hosting two programs for adults and teens to help them start thinking about new careers and navigate the job market and education paths they can take together. Both programs will be in-person at Haggard Library. Registration is not required, and attendees may come and go as their schedule permits:
Navigate Your Future
Saturday, February 5, 2 p.m. at Haggard Library
Are you looking to start a new career? Do you wonder what the job market is like? Learn ways to think about careers and navigate the education path to get there.
This program is aimed at teens (though adults are welcome) with a focus on exploring career paths and an introduction to the job market. If you’re looking for more resources after the program, you can check out these books and more at your local Plano Public Library:

Navigate Job and Career Options
Tuesday February 22, 6:30 p.m. at Haggard Library
Are you looking to start a new career, switch fields or return to work after time off? Do you wonder what the job market is like? Learn ways to think about careers and navigate the education path to get there.
This program, while similar to our teen program, is tailored to meet the unique needs of adults navigating the workforce, whether that means looking for your first job, making a career change, or re-entering the workforce.
