Any Ohio resident looking for new ways to improve their job skills can soon take free online enrichment classes, thanks to the state's public library. All you'll need is an area library card.

Thanks to a partnership with LinkedIn, the Ohio Library Council and the Ohio Public Library Information Network is offering free access to more than 12,000 of's courses — most of which offer training needed for the workforce, such as how to use specific computer programs, but also leadership, writing and business strategies. The program is set to last the next three years, and can be accessed from personal computers or those at any local library.

The service should start up at most library districts in September, just in time for participants to feel like they're really headed back to school.

current webinars right here.
