Gale Courses

Gale Courses

For those of you who have taken a Learn4Life course here at Cass District Library, you know what we’re talking about… over 300 online courses for lifelong learning. As of June 2014, Learn4Life will be called Gale Courses. 

The rebranding is cosmetic. Other than a logo and web address, it’s business as usual. This change will have minimal impact on users.

Gale Courses offers access to online learning courses that are available anytime, anywhere, any place. Other benefits include:

  • Courses are free for all patrons interested in any discipline
  • Gale Courses is easy to use; you use your library account to sign up and log in
  • With six-week courses and new sessions beginning every month, you can join programs year-round
