Resolve to Learn!


At the start of each year we tend to take stock of our lives and consider areas we can improve upon. Have you had a yen to study a language? Did you get a new tablet or computer for Christmas, and need help learning to use it? Would you like to learn how to download eBooks and audiobooks from Library2Go?

If so, you're in luck!  During the month of January, we are offering the following free classes:

  • On Friday, January 9, Online classes with LearningExpress Library and Mango will be offered at 9:00 a.m. This class will introduce students to signing up for online lessons in Microsoft Office products, Adobe software, and over 60 languages.
