Lynda At The Library

Libraries of Stevens County is now offering cardholders free access to online educational courses from Lynda.com, thanks to a partnership with the Washington State Library and the Office of the Secretary of State. 

Now owned by LinkedIn, Lynda.com has been the leading provider of online learning content for 20 years. The service has more than 12,000 courses, ranging from computer programming to project management, including instruction on various computer software, programming languages, and business topics.

It’s free to all library card holders in Stevens County- all you need is your library card number and PIN.

There is also an option to download course content to a hard drive or portable drive and view it later without an active connection.
