One constant in my life is the continual need to learn and grow. Thankfully the library provides fantastic, free learning opportunities for all of us!
If you want to see a huge number of online courses in a wide range of subjects, this is the place to go. Universal Class has many areas of study including accounting, homeschooling, parenting, teacher resources, personal and pet care, finance and a whole lot more! Within the site, you can find hundreds of courses such as weight loss management, face painting, GED test preparation, electronics, cooking and weight training. Each class has a specific number of lessons which you can complete at your own pace. Classes also have the option to earn Continuing Education Unit credits.
To take a look at Universal Class go to http://kslib.info/uclass or to our website. You will register to create an account. If you need a Kansas Library Card for access, call the Information Services Department at 785-825-4624.
Lynda.com is another free learning site filled with many opportunities.
