Blind Date with a Book (Feb. 10-15, 2020)

Looking to heat things up this winter? Are you craving a little intrigue, mystery, action, thrills or romance? Visit our various Library locations between February 10 to 14, 2020 to go on a "blind date" with a book.

Our Libraries will feature a display of pink and red wrapped books - each containing a synopsis of what it's about without giving away the title, author or cover. You then decide which book you would like to checkout for a "date".

    LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com)

    On Tuesday, July 30, LinkedIn (owner of Lynda.com) will move Conestoga's Lynda.com account to its new platform, LinkedIn Learning, resulting in a brief disruption of service while the upgrade takes place.

    Your Learning History
    All your previous Lynda.com data (e.g., the videos and courses you completed) will be transferred to your new LinkedIn Learning account, and you will be able to resume your learning right where you left off.

    Activating Your New Account
    Once the upgrade is complete, you'll receive an email from LinkedIn Learning asking you to activate your account. This link will expire after 14 days. If you find you are not able to activate your account, contact Conestoga's ITS Help Desk to have another activation link sent to you. You must activate your account within 1 year of the upgrade date (July 30) for your individual learning history to be transferred to the LinkedIn Learning platform.

    During the activation, you have the option to connect your LinkedIn Learning account to your existing LinkedIn profile. Doing so will allow you to retain your course history even after leaving Conestoga.

    Access Your Conestoga LinkedIn Learning Account
    After the July 30th migration, you can login to your Conestoga LinkedIn Learning account and/or download the mobile app from the Library's Get Our Apps page.
