The Hernando County Public Library System will celebrate National Library Week 2019 from April 7 through April 13 and will begin providing patrons the ability to learn through tutorials by launching access to the Lynda.com website on Thursday, April 11. The new service will allow cardholders of the Hernando County Public Library System access to over 3,000 courses that include over 13,000 videos on a variety of topics.
Hernando County Library Cardholders will gain free Lynda.com site access April 11
Registered cardholders who would like access to this service can enroll in courses ranging in subjects from 3D animation to business to education. “We want to give patrons another way to keep learning when the libraries are closed or when they cannot make a visit.” Said Sue Kiley, Library Services manager.
To get free Lynda.com access as a Hernando County Public Library cardholder, visit hernandocountylibrary.us/databases or call (352) 754-4043 for more information.
This project has been funded under the provisions of the State Aid to Libraries Grant program, which is administered by the Florida Department of State’s Division of Library and Information Services.
Lynda.com is an online learning site that hosts a constantly growing library of courses including learning Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite and open source applications that can help pursue personal and professional goals. The courses are delivered by expert instructors and feature searchable transcripts that make it easy to find quick answers to questions. They also feature Certificates of Completion that can be uploaded to a LinkedIn profile.
