We miss seeing the LGBTQ community and their allies at our events during this pandemic crisis. As we celebrate PRIDE month, you all are on our mind.  We know that our world has been turned upside down, but we want to share with you they your library is still here.  Until we can greet you face to face again, we still have many other ways that we can serve you during these times.

Many of you are tasked with learning new technology or job skills while practicing social distancing.

Some of us are working remotely; many more are seeking employment.  Free access to the database LYNDA is a perfect opportunity to sharpen your skills or learn something entirely new.

Lynda is a leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals.

Courses offered in LYNDA range from Photoshop and Adobe, to web development and marketing.  You’ll find many different courses in one convenient platform. Track your progress, create playlists, and more!  We’ve helped numerous people benefit from these training options, and hope you will find this helpful as well.

If you’d like to explore our online resources, or you simply desire a book in hand, our vast database can be found on our website; fresnolibrary.org.  In addition, walk-up, curbside checkout, mobile printing and other select services are available.  Hours of service and options vary from branch to branch, please call your local branch to find out hours and services before you go.

Our databases of online resources are free to use, but they do require having a library card number. A few even require being inside the library to be able to use it. If you don’t have a library card at this time, please call your local branch or call our main number (559) 600-7323 (READ) to have a card made for you over the phone.  Details on how to acquire these and more can be found on our website:

Feel free to call your local branch with any needs or questions as well.  We miss you, and thanks for continuing to be our patrons during this difficult time.

Stay safe and we hope to see you soon!
