Online resource offers tutoring, job help and veterans assistance

The Henderson County Public Library announced the launch of a digital resource featuring free online tutoring, career assistance and veteran support tools.

Called of Brainfuse, the new resource offers K-12 students a suite of practice tests, writing assistance and other study tools 24/7, as well as tutoring via live chat from 2 to 11 p.m. seven days a week in both English and Spanish. Live chat help is also available for adults via the Adult Learning Center, which offers live guidance on various subjects at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels, tips on using software like Microsoft Office, and even citizenship test preparation and guidance.

The JobNow component provides 24/7 access to free career tools designed to support every step of the job search process. JobNow also features live chat with online coaches who can assist in resume creation, cover letter preparation, live interview preparation, career coaching and more.

Military veterans and their families can access the VetNow component for both job and academic assistance as they transition to civilian life. VetNow offers help from live navigators from 2 to 10 p.m. Monday-Friday to discuss eligible VA benefits and community resources, as well as the same extensive access to career assistance found in the JobNow component.

“Live online access to private tutors and career coaches is more important than ever as students and parents navigate the virtual school environment and job seekers update skills and adapt to the new workforce culture,” Library Director Trina Rushing said. “We are hoping this suite becomes a favorite one-stop resource to meet community needs.”

Anyone with a Henderson County Library card or StudentAccess account may access Brainfuse from any computer with an internet connection. Visit or call the Main Library at 828-697-4725 to get started.
