Hope this continues

I'm a LMSW who is looking to retire in the next 2 years. I have been thinking of how I can remain active in social work, but in a less intensive environment then I'm in now and perhaps less hours. If there are libraries out there that are considering hiring social workers, but are worried that the could not offer competing salaries because it's not in the budget, please keep in mind that there are retired social workers or retiring social workers who are looking for opportunities like this. I hope I can find a library near me that will have a program like this. In my current job I have worked in the homeless program and the substance use program. A number of my clients use the library on a regular basis and having a social worker in the library setting just makes sense.

Love the trend

I'm an MSW who has been at the library in Richland County for almost three years. I love that this trend is catching traction. It makes so much sense and offers our clients access without stigma.
