Do you know you can take an online course at the library in a learning circle? A learning circle is a study group for learners who want to complete online courses, together with others. This is a free opportunity for adults to learn new skills with others. This season, we will offer virtual, in person, and hybrid learning circle options for your convenience.

Join a multi week course where you will learn the art of storytelling through exploring the process used at the critically acclaimed Pixar studios.
