Learning Express

Learning Express Library is a comprehensive, interactive online learning platform of practice tests and tutorial courses designed to help students and adult learners succeed on academic or licensing tests. You must register with the site, but you only need to create a username and password -- no personal information is required.

Technology Classes

Our Technology classes are designed for beginning to intermediate computer users. Because these classes are held in our Meeting Room (not the computer lab), you are encouraged to bring your own laptop if you would like to practice during class.

No registration is necessary for fall classes, but winter classes (January, February & March) require registration.
