Discover the Resources at your Local Library

By Janet Dodrill

My ClassroomIf there’s something you would like to learn but don’t have the time or money to go to school, try taking a free online course at the Library. Cleveland Public Library offers Ohio residents the opportunity to sign-up for any number of classes in the areas of Accounting and Finance, Business, College Readiness, Computer Applications, Design and Composition, Health Care and Medical, Language and Arts, Law and Legal, Personal Development, Teaching and Education, Technology, Writing and Publishing. Because of my interests, I am drawn to Technology, where there is a category called Graphic and Multimedia Design which includes things like Creating Web Pages, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Flash, and more, at varying levels. The courses run over a 6-weeks period in 2-4 hour increments per week, and are lead by an instructor. An award of completion is given with a passing score.

Obtain a Cleveland Public Library card and have it activated at any CLEVNET library to qualify and enroll at Ed2go.com. See Who May Obtain A Cleveland Public Library Card and How to Apply for a Library Card on CPL’s site. Start dates for this Fall’s classes are Sept. 19, Oct. 17, Nov. 14, and Dec. 12, 2012. Beyond that, check back at the Ed2go.com page. If you’re not in Ohio check with your local library.
