Bluffton Public Library is excited to offer its cardholders access to LinkedIn Learning's library of instructional videos. Using these courses requires a paid subscription, but as a Bluffton Public Library cardholder, you can access LinkedIn Learning content from any computer with an internet connection simply by entering your library card number and 4-digit PIN.

Need a library card?
Read our Borrower's Guide to find out how to receive yours at our front desk during library hours.
After logging in with your library card and pin, and creating an account (which only requires your name and e-mail address), you can watch videos, create playlists, bookmark pages, and obtain Certificates of Completion (that can be uploaded to your LinkedIn profile, or downloaded for emailing or printing.) Many courses also feature free files for exercises, so that if you're watching a tutorial about Microsoft Excel you can follow the activity with downloadable, pre-populated Excel spreadsheet files.

Tutor Me Paperless is a Bluffton Public Library tech tutoring program and is not associated with LinkedIn Learning or LinkedIn.com in any way. During Tutor Me Paperless sessions, a member of library staff may be able to help you acclimate to a new device, set up an email account, or help you access eBooks through the Ohio Digital Library. Tutor Me Paperless sessions are held at the library and require an appointment. These sessions are for tech users that are new to a technology or learning the early basics of that technology.
