Register NOW for a Gale Course and Learn Online for FREE!

Among the many digital resources that that St. Louis Public Library offers is one that I've recommended to many: Gale Courses. The site offers over 350 online courses with an array of subject areas.

I moderate the Central Writers Group, a monthly group that meets at the library for peer review of members' work and an in-house writing session. I've taken a few of the Gale Courses myself, and have recommended their writing classes to the group-- some have taken various courses and raved about them. One member learned how to self-publish his book with the class Publish and Sell Your E-Books. 

The latest classes started on March 18th, but you have until March 31st to register for this session. By March 31st, you'll want to log in and view the first two lessons of the course(s) for which you're enrolled to stay in the class(es). (Not doing so will result in being kicked out of the class for that session). You're also able to take up to 6 classes per session, with no annual limit to how many classes you can take. Here's how you access Gale Courses from the SLPL website
