    Finding a job after being incarcerated offers a unique variety of challenges.

    But the Kern County Library presents the “Next Step: Resource Fair” just for people who find themselves in that circumstance.

    The free event takes place from 3-6 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Beale Memorial Library, 701 Truxtun Ave.

    Resources available are record-expungement assistance; mock Interviews; housing and other legal assistance, resume writing and email setup help; health insurance enrollment and renewal assistance; bike tune-ups; college enrollment information; partnering with mentors; and at-risk youth resources.

    Fair organizers are also looking for volunteers for the event. Anyone interested in helping should call (661) 868-0701.
