Learning Plan Services

Librarians are available at each branch to answer your questions--both big and small--and help you learn new skills. If you are pursuing a project with multiple steps, consider meeting with a librarian to create a Learning Plan.

What is a Learning Plan?

A Learning Plan is a library service created to assist you with large-scale projects or long-term learning goals, such as working towards earning a degree. Your librarian will help you break down the project into smaller steps, find resources for the information you need, and establish attainable goals to help you achieve your objectives.

How do I set up a Learning Plan?

Visit your local library to ask about setting up a Learning Plan. The librarian will discuss your project with you and identify staff with the expertise to create your personalized plan.
