Introducing Library Shorts!
A brand new way to learn
at the library!

What are Library Shorts?

Created with everyone in mind, Library Shorts are an entirely new way to learn just about anything! Designed like a miniature class, Library Shorts are 15 minute sessions that offer those that have tight schedules a chance to learn something new, whether it be about e-books, HiSET or how to use library services, such as your My Account that comes with your library card!
