“Excellent! Thank you for offering this experience.”
One of our goals at the library is to always strive to be the go-to place for residents to learn the tech skills they need for business, school and home. We are pleased to announce the pilot introduction of Treehouse, a new online resource for learning advanced tech skills such as coding, web design and app development. A.H. cardholders will be able to enroll in any of eight different tech tracks that can ultimately give the user the ability to create an online portfolio to show to potential employers. Learn more about Treehouse here and get started today.
