Louisville's Simmons College of Kentucky has been officially designated as a Historically Black College and University, or HBCU.
The announcement, made today via Twitter by college President Kevin Cosby, makes Simmons College the second HBCU in Kentucky; Kentucky State University in Frankfort is the other.
The Louisville Free Public Library is offering another avenue for lifelong learning to area residents.
A grant of about $25,000 from the Louisville Metro Office of Performance Improvement is allowing the library to offer access to Lynda.com—an online learning resource program with more than 3,200 courses—for anyone with a library card, said Paul Burns, a spokesman for the library.
The library announced the offering on Tuesday.
Burns said the courses offered by the program range from photography to video game design.
