LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — If you're looking to learn a new skill or hobby, the local library is offering free help.
Libraries have always been known as an information warehouse - allowing people to access almost anything they'd like to know.
“Access to a library is really important to me because it creates an environment where I can work better and achieve more,” Grace Lange, a library patron, said.
And achieving more is what the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District is hoping to accomplish.
It's providing access to thousands of different online courses from many platforms.
“Now is a good time to kind of skill up or learn a new skill. Develop or re-develop your resume. Learn something new for yourself,” Leo Segura, the acting assistant library operations director for the LVCCLD, said.
These include courses on auto repair to do-it-yourself art projects and learning how to make a short film.
The courses can be all done for free with a library card.
“Your library card is the key to the world and we’ve always been the education center for the common person,” Segura said.
And library staff advise all patrons to have an open mind on what to learn.
