Www.theOceancountylibrary.org is giving free lynda access for card holders

Same with Brooklyn library, sign up for an ecard for instant access. No proof of address needed, they're using the device location.

Yes, but no proof needed. For a physical card you need to go in to a location to pick up your card with proof of address.

Anything for Cuy County?
I am a member of CH/UH, and that automatically gives me access lynda, and  to Clevnet for Consumer reports.

Anyone in Ohio can join CHUH

What do I have to do to get a library card?

It’s easy and it’s free to anyone who lives, works, owns property or goes to school in Ohio.

I saw Lynda mentioned a few times. What is that?

Side question, what's the advantage of Lynda over EDX, Corseau, and the like?

It seems Ocean county library lost their Lynda access. Do other libraries still have it?
