The Roxbury Public Library now offers unlimited, on-demand access to Lynda.com. Lynda.com is a one of the best known continuing education resource out there and is respected by employers worldwide.
There are over 14,000 courses in subjects ranging from Adobe Photoshop to UX Design. Brush up or dive deep into Microsoft Excel, AutoCAD, InDesign, and more. Learn Ruby on Rails, C++, WordPress, and even how to build apps for Android and iOS. It’s not just technical skills either! There are courses on Public Speaking, Time Management, Project Management, Online Marketing, Leadership, QuickBooks, Financial Management and so much more.
Lynda.com’s library is extensive and can help you improve your resume dramatically (there are resume courses too!). Whether you want to plug a hole in your knowledge or switch careers altogether, Lynda.com will help you get there. Even better, when you finish a course you can export a certificate of completion directly to your LinkedIn profile!
Access this incredible resource through the library's website only, and not through the consumer side of Lynda.com. You will be asked to enter your library card number and PIN. If you are not sure of either, please call the library or stop by, and we’ll do our best to resolve the issue.
All residents, employees and students of Roxbury Township are eligible for a Roxbury Public Library card.
