Goodbye Lynda... Hello LinkedIn Learning for Library!

You may have noticed that is no longer on our website. What has happened to this beloved learning resource? Not to worry! It is now called LinkedIn Learning for Library.

LinkedIn Learning for Library is an upgraded and expanded version of, with 16,000+ online courses in 7 languages. Courses fall into the broad categories of Business, Technology and Creative, and cover everything from customer service to human resources, software development to computer networks, and graphic design to photography.

If you are new to LinkedIn Learning, you will only need your library card number and your 4-digit PIN to use it. You do not need to have a LinkedIn social media account, and access is free through the library. As with all of our electronic resources, you will need to access LinkedIn Learning for Library through the library's website. If you had a Lynda account, it is still intact and located in LinkedIn Learning for Library now. The interface should look very familiar and is just as easy to use.
