Did you know that hundreds of dollars can be saved each year, just by having a library card?
Jill Fuller, coordinator of Marketing and Communications with the Bridges Library System in Waukesha, Wisconsin, suggests many money-saving options for public library patrons interested in books, movies, genealogy, classes and technology. For learning a new hobby or skill, Jill recommends Gale Courses.
Gale Courses is Gale’s eLearning database which provides more than 365, six-week-long online programs taught by college instructors who are experts in their field. Courses focus on professional development, technology skills, and personal enrichment. View full course catalog with descriptions >>
“If a New Year resolution includes learning a new hobby or skill, one could spend over $100 for a class at a local college. Or choose from over 300 online classes available through Gale Courses at no cost. Take as many as you want, learn as much as you need.”
