Fall = Learning (Even for Grown-ups!)
Crisper mornings bring to mind sharpened pencils and yellow school buses, but learning doesn't have to stop just because you've finished school. The Library has so many ways to satisfy your curiosity for knowledge, and it's all FREE.
Speak a New Tongue with Rocket Languages
You don't need to shell out hundreds of dollars for a quality language instruction program -- you can get it for FREE online through our website. With more than a dozen languages to choose from, you can work at your own pace and learn a little or a lot in just a few minutes per day.
Studies have shown that adults who continue learning are healthier in mind and body than those who don't, and with our incredible selection of nearly 40 online class subject areas, you're bound to discover something that piques your interest. We even offer a whole resource -- DigitalLearn -- devoted to teaching basic computer skills, in both English and Spanish. If you'd prefer to listen to CD's or watch DVDs, consider The Great Courses, an award-winning series of courses on topics ranging from science to fine arts to better living, and all taught by esteemed experts in the fields. These are incredible educational opportunities that cost you nothing -- all you need is your library card. Learning is not just for the very young, so stay curious and learn something new this school year!
Acquiring more professional knowledge and/or skills always increases your value to employers. Whether you want to move up or out from your current position, our Learning Express materials will help you go further. You can explore occupations, learn computer skills, and practice for occupational tests like the CDL. Those seeking to earn their GED can even take practice tests. And it's all for FREE.
Pick Up a New Hobby
Learning doesn't have to be about books and school subjects; it can also be about learning new crafts or hobbies. The Library has shelves full of books and DVDs just begging you to take them home and discover your creative or collecting side. Our librarians are always excited to help you discover a new talent or interest, so don't be shy about asking for help!
