DES MOINES – Iowa Workforce Development has partnered with the Manning Public Library to provide virtual workforce services to the area communities. The access point creates access to workforce services through a familiar community location.
“The access point system provides Iowans with the opportunity to utilize workforce services in a convenient location close to home,” indicated Iowa Workforce Development director Teresa Wahlert. “With over 700 access points, 15 regional centers and 4 satellite offices we have more than tripled our access for Iowans and we will continue adding locations throughout the year.”
