Free Classes through Ruidoso Public Library

That's right: FREE

“I'm excited about Universal Class because it offers continuing education classes that are relevant for our whole community -- from learning more about a hobby, to improving job skills, to increasing knowledge. Universal Class will enrich our patron's lives,” said Beverly McFarland, Library Directoer at Ruidoso Public Library. “At a time when budgets are tight, this service is a way that we can offer hundreds of continuing education opportunities to our customers. In the first week, I was able to share the relevance of Universal Class courses at existing programs for homeschoolers, community businesses, and genealogists.”
