Visit or Search Other Libraries
There are many other libraries in California from which you can gain access to resources.
With over 40 locations, Fresno County Library is an excellent resource for many digital and print items Henry Madden Library doesn’t subscribe to, including a wide array of popular reading materials, digitized Fresno County history collections, LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com), and Mango Languages.
Many resources are available remotely with a current library card. For immediate access to digital resources, electronically register for a library card. For physical items, find the information for your nearest branch here.
Not a Fresno County resident, and looking for LinkedIn Learning, Coursera, or Mango Languages? Check out this map from the California State Library CAreer Pathways to see if your library offers remote access to these resources.
