The San Diego Workforce Partnership (the WIB) has been partnering with the City of San Diego Public Libraries, and the County library system for years. In fact, one of the newer county libraries, in Bonita, CA, was designed with a first-in-the-nation one-stop inside of it. Libraries are logical partners because they are neighborhood based, and tend to have computers available for simple job search.

Thanks for the info, Larry. This is a great model. You're right, libraries are logical partners. I'd love to hear from other WIBs or One-Stops that have created similar partnerships.

I'd also be interested in hearing what kinds of hurdles had to be overcome to make those partnerships happen.
