Librarians have an exceptional partner in LearningExpress Library.  It’s a resource that can be utilized by nearly every student for help with classroom basics or advanced studies; studying for AP tests and sample tests; sample tests for GED; and U.S. Citizenship tests.

In addition, LearningExpress recently added 18, new, self-paced, easy-to-follow multimedia tutorials focused on Computer and Internet Basics.  These are engaging, on-line tutorials that teach PC essentials in a straightforward, non-technical manner.

The Job and Career Accelerator offers many resources for the student seeking a first job.

LearningExpress is a great resource! It’s as easy as establishing a username and password to get started. All work within the program such as practice tests, resumes, and job searches are saved in a way that the user can easily recapture.


Access LearningExpress through the State Library of Kansas website.  Click on Explore our Resources in the yellow box.
