What is a learning circle?

Learning Circles are a collaboration between two of the library’s greatest strengths: diverse educational resources and you, the community!  Each Learning Circle focuses on a different topic ranging from creative writing to business with video courses from Udemy or another video learning resource. Here's what to expect:

  • Facilitation by a library staff member to assist with communal conversation
  • A video-based course viewing that will run from 30 minutes to an hour
  • Time to discuss, ask questions, and/or apply concepts from the video selections
  • Additional library resources recommended by the facilitator for further learning or research

For longer courses, there are multiple sessions, so be sure to catch all of them during the month they're scheduled. Keep reading to see upcoming topics for future learning circles.
