Library Loop: A look at events, opportunities and resources at local libraries
We’re back! Did you know that you have the resources of three county libraries at your disposal? Placer, Washoe and Nevada County libraries all offer library cards to neighboring counties. We offer great yet differing resources. For example, Washoe County has Mango languages – language learning for 72 languages, Nevada County has Kanopy — award winning video streaming, and Placer has Coursera — 3,800 cutting edge courses taught by top instructors from leading universities and companies. All of these and much more are available to you with your library card account.
Many people take advantage of our e-Resources such as eBooks and e-Audiobooks but did you know we also have e-Magazines, streaming music, online tutoring, job seeker and veteran resources? In addition to our vast online resources, we have the rich physical holdings of each library plus cozy reading nooks, fabulous community programming, and of course our friendly staff members eager to be of service. All our libraries offer computer use, free Wi-Fi, printing, copying, scanning, and some locations offer FAX services. Please stop by and check out all we offer. Libraries are not just about books!
