The Skill Series

Each month, we will feature educational opportunities and services designed to elevate your life.

Whether you are going near or far this summer, you can find free resources at the library. It's always a good idea to get started by signing up for Summer Learning. Readers of all ages can win prizes for their reading! If you are staying local, you can find fun, free attractions using Discover & Go and Santa Clara County Parks Pass. For those who are traveling farther, Mango Languages can help you learn conversation skills in over 70 different languages. Finally, you can always experience culture and art right in the comfort of your home with the Performing Arts Collection which features opera, music and theatre. Whenever you are going this summer, make sure to take the library along with you!
