Luckily in Saint Paul there is a place everyone can go for FREE help and education. The public library! Saint Paul Public Library has branches in every neighborhood of the city and most of our online resources are available from home with a library card registered in our system. Here are a few things you can do at the library to upgrade your technology skills:
- Get personal computer and career development assistance during Open Computer Labs staffed by Americorps service members at George Latimer Central , Rondo, Rice Street, or Arlington Hills libraries.
- Learn an advanced software skill like Quickbooks or Adobe Illustrator using the library’s free Lynda.com subscription in the comfort of your home or office.
- Tinker with 3D printers, a laser engraver, or the full Adobe Creative Cloud in the downtown Innovation Lab, Saint Paul’s only free makerspace exclusively for adults.
- Take a free class on Social Media Marketing, Microsoft Excel, Creating a Free or Low-Cost Web Site and more.
- Test your employees on their basic computer skills with our Northstar Digital Literacy assessments. Skills falling short? Send them to the library to take classes or get 1:1 help until they can get certified.
- Ask a question! Librarians are trained to provide 1:1 research consultations and will endeavor to provide you with resources to help you with any question you have. Call us at 651-266-7000, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.sppl.org.
