The Community Navigator program is a partnership between Employment and Social Services (ESS) and CKPL. The Community Navigators assist residents of Chatham-Kent with navigating systems (Housing, Education, Employment, and Income); working with technology, and connecting with supportive community services. Working together, CKPL and ESS are able to bring these services to all residents of Chatham-Kent through the 11 branches of the library.
