  • Continue strong annual support of the Summer Reading Challenge for all ages, children's events, and adult cultural programming
  • Partner with schools to support the Read to Succeed tutoring programs to ensure first graders have the literacy skills needed for school success

Career Tips
Looking for a new career? Career Transitions can help! Browse career paths or assess your interests with interactive questionnaires, write a resume and cover letter, practice interview skills and more. There's even a job search tool powered by Indeed, and you can get it all in one place, in the library or at home, free with your library card!
To access Career Transitions, start at chandlerlibrary.org, hover your mouse over the purple Research & Learning tab, then choose A-Z List of Resources and scroll down to Career Transitions. You'll need your library card and PIN if you're signing in from home. Then pick an activity from the front page and get started. You can create a free account on the Career Transitions site if you want to save your information.
Can't make it in to the library to get a card? We now offer eCards that allow access to our online resources, including Career Transitions! If you're a Maricopa County resident, you can fill out the online form to register for your eCard. See more at our Get a Library Card page. eCard users can come in to the library later to upgrade to a full-access card that allows checkout of books and other physical materials.
