While a small portion of Skillshare’s classes and workshops are free, the library has purchased a team plan and has 10 memberships available for the public to ‘check-out’ for 30-days. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Currently, the Skillshare 30-day memberships are only available for Cooper-Siegel or Sharpsburg library card holders.
  • Fill out the form below when you’re ready to check-out your 30-day membership. We’ll get back to you within 1 business day with what you need to know to get started. Your membership will begin as soon as we send you your confirmation email and ends exactly 30 days after that.
  • After your 30-day membership expires, the account you create with Skillshare will remain active and your access reverts back to their free portion of classes.
  • You can always check-out a 30-day membership again, as many times as you’d like. But there are no true renewals, like there are with books.
  • If all 10 of our memberships are currently checked-out, you’ll be placed on a waiting list and notified when a membership will become available.


Fill out this form to let us know you'd like a 30-day membership to Skillshare. Once we receive the form, you'll be contacted within 1 business day with what you need to get started.
