Learn Business, Technical, and Creative Skills with Lynda.com

Lynda.com screenshotIf you are looking to get started on learning a new skill, or want to brush up on technologies you have learned in the past, Lynda.com is a great place to start for easy-to-use video tutorials.

Thousands of courses are available. Experts teach you about Microsoft Office, Photoshop, Illustrator, web design, digital video and audio, and much more!

Getting Started

The first time you visit the library's Lynda.com portal, click "Create a profile".

Enter your library card number (with no spaces between the numbers) and create a password. Your password must:

  • be at least 6 characters long and
  • include a number and a letter.

The next time you log in, use your library card number and the password you created.

Lynda.com is free to you to use with your library card. You can take as many classes and tutorials as you like! The library's contract with Lynda.com allows up to 75 people to use the service at the same time. If 75 people are using Lynda.com simultaneously, any additional users will need to wait until one of the current users logs out. (The service is popular, but we don't think this has happened to us yet!)
