Lynda.com is a 24/7 video learning service available to library patrons that provides the opportunity to learn software, technology, creative, and business skills.  The courses are in video format so users can view video tutorials taught by recognized industry experts to learn a new skill or increase knowledge of an existing skill.  You can reach lynda.com by clicking here:  https://www.lynda.com/portal/sip?org=stls.org   or click on the Lynda.com icon on the CCLD website http://ccld.lib.ny.us/ homepage and log in using your library card number and PIN.

Then you can search the video library for a topic of your interest.  Lynda will remember you so if you cannot finish the course in one sitting, you can come back later and continue where you left off.

It’s perfect for any businessperson, company owner, student, techie type or naturally curious individual who wants to expand their knowledge of a wide variety of topics.   You can access Lynda from your home computer, tablet and even on your smart phone.

Lynda.com adds new courses each month.  Below is a list of new courses just added in December.  To keep you informed, we will continue to post new courses in coming months.

computerConfounded by computers? Intimidated by technology, but afraid to ask questions?

You are not alone! Many, many adults have had to teach themselves how to use a computer and explore the web. Some have sailed through the process, while others need more help.

To all of us who “don’t get it”, don’t be discouraged! Start by taking a free computer class at the Steele Memorial Library! We have several courses: Beginning Computer class, which explains the parts of the computer, the way it works, how to operate a mouse, etc. Beginning Internet, which explains how to navigate the internet, determine safe sites, protect yourself from hackers, and stay one step ahead of them with strong passwords.

We also have Tablet Talk classes – a class on how to use your device at Steele and at the Horseheads branch! All types of devices are welcome – just bring your device in fully charged, and any passwords you need, and our staff will help you tackle the broad strokes and the fine points!

Check our monthly calendar of events for the next class! You can take as many classes as you like!

You CAN do this!
