Get homework help with Brainfuse, an online tutoring site with help for elementary – high school assistance in math, reading/writing, science, social studies and test prep including the SAT, ACT and GED. JobNow provides advice on resumes, interviews and other career assistance by a career coach during all stages of a job search. LinkedIn Learning provides online video courses to help improve your work or creative skills with classes on everything from app development to graphic design to human resource management and so much more including photography, drawing, and piano. And if you are interested in being creative but want assistance or ideas then be sure and check out the newer app Creativebug for over 1,000 video classes by top artists and designers and learn to knit, to paint, to felt or sew. Learn general crafting skills or follow directions for a specific project. In other words, if you want to learn something, the library can probably help and if you want to learn now, check out our online resources and get learning today. You will need your library card number for most of these resources and links to the online sites can be found on the library website
