Introducing PAL

The Charleston Carnegie Public Library is excited to announce to the launch of a brand new collection—the Professional Accessories Library (PAL). PAL is a collection of ties and handbags with the purpose of helping our patrons prepare for interviews or similar professional events.


PAL pairs perfectly with the Get Your Resume Ready workshop provided by the EIU Civic Engagement and Volunteerism Office--watch for that workshop to return in January. We will also have more workshops in the spring focused on varying aspects of job hunting, including finding applications, filling them out, and interviewing. 


PAL can be found by the Information Desk on the 4th floor of the library, and items will check out for 14 days. We are also accepting donations of professional accessories for the collection, preferably in like-new condition. 


Why PAL?

Walk in with confidence.

Make the right first impression.

Save your money for celebrating your new job.
