There’s also software training (tutorials and certifications) for a range of platforms and programs, including cloud computing, database management, Microsoft programs and web development. On the creative side, there are courses about graphic design, music, drawing, writing, photography and much more.

You have access to all these courses for free, with your library card. Just click on Resources on the library homepage, keyslibraries.org.

You just need to come into one of the library branches within three months and confirm that you live here.

Also don’t forget that if you have questions about the library during times we’re open, you can always click the “Ask A Librarian” button on the bottom righthand side of the homepage.
