Winter MOOCs

Our upcoming MOOCs, selected by past participants, are (drumroll) ...

Learning How to Learn begins online January 2nd and our first discussion will be Sunday, January 11. Sign up at Coursera and register for the library discussions (so we know how much coffee to brew). 4 weeks.

The Language of Hollywood, Storytelling, Sound and Color begins online February 2 and our first discussion will be Sunday, February 8. 5 weeks. This is also a Coursera class. Register for the library discussions.

Since these courses do not overlap, all will be held at 12:30.

Genetics, neurobiology and circadian clocks also had fans. We will try to do some science soon.

How To ....

Want to learn how to flirt? mix drinks? blog? use Microsoft Word, plan a cheap wedding? make sausage? coach basketball? write a memoir or play? do trig?

We recently purchased a large collection of "For Dummies®" books in online, streaming format. You can read them directly on your pad, phone or laptop.

Although John Wiley & Sons, is a reputable publisher of excellent materials, particularly in sciences, their "dummies" series varies in quality. So check the qualifications of the authors. You will find an "About the Author" section in the table of contents for each book.

You will need a Takoma Park library card to access our online books.

A reminder — we have many "for dummies" and "idiot's guides" in print in the physical library.
