Moorestown Library offering new virtual services, expanded hours

The Moorestown Library is providing free courses and self-training opportunities.

The Moorestown Library now provides free access to courses and self-training opportunities via Lynda.com and Universal Class to anyone with a Moorestown Library Card. 

Lynda.com is a leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative. Universal Class offers lifelong learning courses in more than 30 subject areas, many of which offer continuing education units (CEUs). More than 500 courses are available, and all are designed and led by professional instructors.

To access these and other training resources, visit www.moorestownlibrary.org and click on Online Learning. A Moorestown Library card number will be required. Moorestown residents can apply for a library card by visiting the library or by completing an application online.

“It is our hope that these new resources will help Moorestown residents who are looking to develop skills and expertise for their business or for future employment,” says Joan Serpico, Moorestown Library Director.

The library now has expanded hours and is open on Mondays through Fridays from 9:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m. The library is open on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 

Visitors are required to wear a mask, social distance and complete their visit within 60 minutes due to capacity limitations. Computers are available and reservations can be made by calling (856)234–0333, option 2.

Contactless pickup service is still available for those who want it and delivery of library materials can be provided for those who need it. Arrangements can be made for delivery by calling the library at (856)234–0333, option 1.

Summer Reading continues with virtual book reviews, prizes and games.
