As seen on TV…..
This week you may see some very short television spots on WCAX, about free services offered to ALL Vermonters through their library. These services are paid for by the state, at no cost to the library. Each day we will feature details about one of them.
LearningExpress Library is now available to all Vermonters at no charge through Peacham Library. LearningExpress Library provides a comprehensive selection of academic and career-related solutions available in one platform. It includes skill-building in reading, writing, math, and science, college admissions exams, occupational licensing tests, workplace skills improvement, career exploration, and much more. The subscription includes Job & Career Accelerator, a job and career platform where job seekers can explore occupations, find career matches based on interests and skills, search for jobs and internships, search for scholarships, write winning resumes and much more. Also included is computer Skills Center, where one can learn the fundamentals of using a computer, the Internet and popular software applications with these self-paced, easy-to-use online tutorials —in beginner to advanced levels.
LearningExpress library is a deep and broad tool that has something for everyone, from prep for the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) exam, nursing and medical testing prep, job interview and resume writing, computer skills, SAT, LSAT, and GRE test prep, to interactive tools to help someone choose a career. It can help someone choose a pathway in life or provide the tools to get a better job.
The first time you use the site:
- You will click on Sign In/Register in the menu. On the next page, under New User you’ll click Register.
- To create an account, you will enter your name and address, and create a password. You will not need a barcode or library card number.
- Alternately, if you don’t have an email address, or would just prefer not to use it, you can click “I’d rather NOT register with my email” to the right. You will need to create a username and a password. You will be asked to choose a security question and an answer (in case you ever forget your password). Make sure you write down your username and security question, as there is no way to retrieve them.
After you have registered:
- You will click Sign In/Register. You can then use your email address (the default) or username (if you chose to create one – see step 3 above) and password to login.
- If you have forgotten your password or are otherwise having trouble getting logged in, you should go to the Sign In page and click Forgot Password. You will either receive an email with a reset link, or (if you didn’t share your email address) you’ll need to answer the security question you setup during registration.
