Libraries and the American dream

Libraries are necessities for me. On Facebook, a friend mentioned she’d just completed a technical certification for her work. I rejoiced in her success. but I also wondered if she knew she could get certifications (technical, business, and other fields) through Polk County Library Cooperative (PCLC) libraries. Did I forget to mention that to her? In this column? You can get tech certifications and other work-related education coursework through libraries. For free! Your PCLC libraries provide access to databases (Gale Courses, Lynda and Treehouse), which offer learning tracks for certifications like:

• AMA Professional Certified Marketer in Digital Marketing

• CompTIA Security+ Certified Security Professional

• Various Microsoft 2013 specialties (Word, PowerPoint, Access, and Excel)
