Williamsburg- On July 29, the Williamsburg Regional Library announced the launch of a new resource that will benefit job seekers as well as students and veterans throughout the community.

The new digital resource Brainfuse is provided courtesy of the Library of Virginia and offers three programs: JobNow, HelpNow, and VetNow.

The JobNow program is described as a one-stop shop for job seekers, and includes services for career help, resume help, interview preparation, and more. The program also offers support in cover letter writing, development of job-related skills, and career changes through an expert job coach.

Brainfuse’s HelpNow program for students offers tutoring services covering a variety of academic needs while the VetNow program aids military veterans with transition to civilian life.

All three programs are available for free through the library’s website.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
