The Great Courses

We’d like to present to you “The Great Courses”. These are college level audio and video courses taught by some of the best professors in the world and distributed by The Teaching Company. We all know a great teacher makes the class interesting and the subject matter understood by all. . Having taken a class personally and spoken to patrons who have as well, we can all tell you that is the case with these lessons.


The courses cover many topics. Here at the Wead Library  we have courses like “The Everyday Gourmet”, “Our Night Sky”, “The World’s Greatest Geological Wonders” and much more!  They consist of one or more books along with DVDs. We would love for you to try them out. What usually happens is the patron is so pleased with  the first course taken that they can’t wait to start another that they hadn’t even planned on.

If  you have any questions regarding The Great Courses, please feel free to give us a call at 518-483-5251.  You will need an adult card to check out a course for 28 days.  Stop by and select a topic of interest and enjoy this engaging, immersive learning experience.
