Whistler Public Library patrons can now get a whole lot more out of their library card, thanks to the launch last week of three new online resources.
Whistler residents now have free access to online tutorials and digital newspapers from around the world, and can stream films and music with their library card.
“The Whistler Public Library continues to provide exceptional service, connecting our community with cutting-edge resources from around the world. Whistler residents can access three new online resources from any computer using their library card,” said library board char Mike McCarville in a release.
The new online resources available at the library include: Lynda.com, an extensive library of over 13,000 training videos on a variety of topics, such as business productivity and professional design software, audio and video production, and mobile platforms; Press Display, where you can read from over 3,500 international, national and provincial newspapers; and Hoopla, which allows patrons to instantly borrow from a massive collection of movies and music.
These new services are part of the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s commitment outlined by the council-appointed Learning and Education Task Force to expand learning and educational initiatives in the community.
