Wednesday at the public library

Afternoon: Training session on Lynda.com; Evening: Dealing with grief

Two programs focusing on two different interests are on Wednesday's calendar at the Ada Public Library.

The afternoon is a "Learn to use Lynda.com" program. In the evening is the first of a series of programs on "dealing with grief." Details on both programs follow:

Lynda.com
Lynda, a.k.a, Lynda.com, offered more than 12,000 expert-led courses designed for any skill level.

A free training session takes place at the library at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday. All you need is an Ada Public Library card to take the training.

A visit to Lynda.com website reveals countless courses available in design, software development, photography, web development and business, as examples.

Lynda.com is an online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals.

Through individual, corporate, academic and government subscriptions, members have access to the Lynda.com video library of engaging, top-quality courses taught by recognized industry experts.

For 20 years, Lynda.com has helped students, leaders, IT and design pros, project managers—anyone in any role—develop software, creative, and business skills.

Struggling to overcome grief
The Mental Health Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize and Hardin Counties series of free programs focusing on the struggle to overcome grief begins at 6 p.m., Wednesday.

The programs take place in the library from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays, now through May 8, according to Chris Estes, Prevention Marketing Specialist, LOSS Team Coordinator.

Estes asks: “Are you struggling with your grief, over a death, a relationship, your pet, a life change? When Option A doesn’t work out, go to Option B, which is facing adversity, building resilience and finding joy.”

The group sessions will work with the book titled “Option B.” Books will be available for participants who do not have their own copy.

Trained facilitators will lead the sessions, which are free and open to the public.
