Arapahoe/Douglas Works! Satellite Office now in Philip S. Miller Library in Castle Rock

Arapahoe/Douglas Works! in Philip S. Miller LibraryThe Arapahoe/Douglas Works! Workforce Center has moved its satellite office in Castle Rock from the Douglas County Human Services building to the Philip S. Miller Library. The new location in downtown Castle Rock offers increased visibility and more space for the workforce center to provide no-cost employment assistance to job-seekers and businesses. It is the first time in history that an Arapahoe/Douglas Works! office will be housed in a public library, made possible by an intergovernmental agreement with the Douglas County Library District.

“Our libraries and workforce center are among our region’s greatest assets for our citizens’ personal and professional growth, so it makes perfect sense to house them under one roof,” said Arapahoe County Commissioner Bill Holen. “Residents can now visit the Phillip S. Miller Library to access library collections for lifelong learning, as well as find valuable job-search assistance from the workforce center.”

The satellite office features six public computers with internet access, a fax machine, copy machine and courtesy phones for job-search activities, as well as reference materials and notice of job postings and hiring events. Workforce center personnel are on hand to offer one-on-one employment counseling and access to training programs. Workshops on résumé writing and interviewing skills are offered in library classrooms every other week. Workforce center hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – noon and 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. For more information on Arapahoe/Douglas Works! services for job-seekers and businesses, please call 303-636-1160 or visit adworks.org.
