LinkedIn Learning is a valuable tool that students, faculty, and staff can use to build a variety of skills. Thanks to Ohio Library systems, anyone with an Ohio county library card can access LinkedIn Learning for free. 

To get an Ohio county Library Card, visit a library within Ohio with your driver's license and your student ID if you are a student. If you are unsure of where to obtain a library card, the Cedarville Community Library is a great option close to campus and within the Greene County Library system. Ohio county Public Library Cards are free for all residents of Ohio, including out-of-state students as long as they're residing in Ohio for college. You will use the thirteen-digit number on your library card and your pin for your login.

If you do not have a pin but your account is attached to an email, reset your pin. If you do not have a pin nor an email, contact the library either through a contact form, in person, or through the live chat at the bottom of the Green County Public Library Website.
