Glades Library Offers Free Online Education Classes

Great Things At The Glades County Library

MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- Glades County Library now offers many of the newest releases of books available for loan on a 14-day basis.  These include some of the most popular titles and most popular authors.  Also, there are new DVDs available.
I'm Austin Moorhouse, a writer and member of the Friends of the Library and I would like to share with you some of the activities, events and opportunities with your Glades County Public Library.  Did you know that the library offers free educational courses?
Yes, I said free education!  You can't ask for more than that.  But, that isn't all.  You can use the computers at the library or using your Glades library card, you can sign up for these courses online through the Heartland Library Cooperative and do your studies on your own home computer at your leisure and at your own pace.   

The library now has Universal Classes in 41 different major areas of study.  Within each of these areas there are numerous courses for business, pleasure and continuing education.  Some of these courses offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for those of you who need them to maintain your licenses and certifications. 
You may get more information from your Glades County Public Library or online from the Heartland Library Cooperative.
Also, check out our new "self checkout" machine at the library.  You may check out two books with the Automatic Self-Checkout using only your library card.

Residents of Hendry County may go to their local library and request a reciprocal borrow sticker to be placed on their Hendry County Library card and this will entitle them to privileges at the Glades County Public Library. The resident with a reciprocal sticker must physically come in to Glades County Library in order to provide the necessary information to be entered into the Glades library system. This is a one-time required visit.

If a resident of Hendry County works in Glades County, they may apply directly for a Glades library card.
