The Library will also host eight additional free, virtual Grow with Google programs through mid-March. Topics will include “Creating a SEO (Search Engine Optimized) resume,” “Using Google to create and host your resume,” “Creating a website for your business with Google,” and “Marketing your business with Google and Library resources.”  Three virtual programs with speakers discussing career development, resume building, and small business development are planned in February and March.  View upcoming programs on the Library’s online calendar: https://buffalolib.libcal.com/calendar.  For more information, call the Library at 716-858-8900 or visit www.BuffaloLib.org.
