What’s happening at Carnegie Library?


By Sarah Nichols - Carnegie Public Library Director



Ohioans have access to more premium databases and resources this fall, thanks to the Ohio Library Council and the Ohio Public Library Information Network. With a valid library card, you now have free access to more than 6,600 courses through Lynda.com (a LinkedIn company), ranging from computer programming to project management – including instruction on various computer software, programming languages, and business topics.

Video courses are taught by industry experts and are designed for individuals of all skill levels. Lynda.com offers more than 50 learning paths, designed to help users enhance skills in their current job or change careers. Learning paths include web development, project management, small business management, and more. Another addition includes the Chilton Library. This database provides access to repair, maintenance and service information on the most popular cars, trucks, vans and SUVs on the road today, as well as, many new vehicles.

This continuously updated resource provides step-by-step repair procedures, troubleshooting guides, diagnostic trouble codes, photos, illustrations, diagrams, and multimedia (videos and animations) to simplify even the most complicated tasks. Carnegie Public Library card holders need just their library card number and PIN to access. Check it out today!
