We’ve just learned that our Gale Courses subscription will continue! We’re maybe still busy with summer activities now, but, as temperatures cool and we’re driven to spending more time indoors, what better time could there be to take the time to learn something you’ve always wanted to know. The variety of educational offerings is impressive and you’ll absolutely find SOMEthing you’ve always wanted to know on their listings! Give us a call if you need some help figuring out how to navigate the site or contact Library Director Kristine Lendved at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Life-long learning sounds marvelous…until you think about having to travel somewhere with uncertain road conditions, etc.etc. Well…what if all you had to do was fire up your home computer…or turn on your device? The libraries of the Northern Waters Library Service are thrilled to tel you about our subscription to GALE COURSES. This service enables you to take classes in anything from…basic accounting to romance writing…web design to conversational French…job search skills to mindfulness and meditation. So. Many. Classes.
All you need to sign up and take these courses is…a library card! Some of these classes are designed to function as continuing ed credits for educators and health care workers. Employers may accept some of these classes as continuing ed credits or evidence of expertise in various computer programs, such as Excel. If you are past having to worry about any of that, consider taking a class in something you’ve always been interested in…say, drawing or writing your life story or learning a language. Why wouldn’t ya?
We did mention that all you need is a library card…yes?
