Linda dot com to Linked In Learning

Lynda.com has a new name… and much more!

LinkedIn Learning purchased Lynda.com, and we’ll be transitioning to their new platform on April 14. It will be updated and easier to use, and you'll have access to 9,000 new courses to explore. Look for tutorials  in French, as well as Spanish, Mandarin, Portuguese, German and Japanese.

And don’t worry – you don’t have to create a LinkedIn profile! All you need is your library card number and PIN to connect.

Spotlight on Trees

Trees are our natural allies as we fight climate change. They provide food and shelter, and walking amongst them reconnects us with the natural world. The books and movies on this list look at trees from many points of view.

Later this month, local garden experts Joyce Hostyn and Maureen Buchanan will join KFPL to explore the tiny forest movement and share how they are applying it in Kingston.

Flipster digital magazines. All you need is your library card.

Download your favourites

The virtual April editions of several magazines are now available for you to enjoy! Settle in to browse delicious spring recipes in Canadian Living or Coup de Pouce, or get workout tips from Michael B. Jordan in Men's Health. Let staff know if you need help getting started.
