Property Management Made Simple

Learn about the trials and tribulations of dealing with evictions, small claims, problem tenants and routine property management and maintenance when authors Sheamus Clarke and Scott Stellhorn present the program, "Property Management Made Simple," throughout December at various Indy Library locations.

The authors' recently-released book, 80/20 Landlording, is a must-have for any rental owner or property manager with information gained from more than 45 years of combined landlord experience between the two authors. The book's title is rooted in the so-called Pareto principle, which states that in most cases roughly 80 percent of a landlord's headaches will be caused by about 20 percent of the tenants. It also relates to the authors' premise that 20 percent of a landlord's most important efforts produce 80 percent of the results.

"Property Management Made Simple" will be presented at the following times and locations:

Sunday, November 23 at 1 p.m.
Nora Branch, 8625 Guilford Avenue

Library Job Centers Target Workforce Development

Throughout December, The Indianapolis Public Library is providing greater one-on-one assistance to chronically unemployed or underemployed individuals through the Job Centers at nine Library locations.

In partnership with EmployIndy, the non-profit workforce investment board for Marion County, as well as WorkOne, a local specialist in career counseling and programming, the Library's Job Centers provide technological training, specialized resources and educational opportunities for those seeking to enhance their employment skills. Each session focuses on job search strategies, interviewing skills, resume development, and instruction on basic computer skills.

Funding for the Job Centers is made possible by The Indianapolis Foundation Library Fund and Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation. In addition to Central Library (The TCU Foundation Job Center), Job Center sites are located at the Brightwood, College Avenue, Eagle, East Thirty-Eighth Street, Garfield Park, Pike, Southport and Warren branch locations.
