The Idaho Falls Public Library maintains a LinkedIn Learning subscription for patron access. LinkedIn and the Idaho Falls Public Library are not affiliated with or endorsed by one another.


Access to LinkedIn Learning through the library’s subscription is restricted to library patrons who live in Bonneville County.

LinkedIn doesn’t collect any personal information when you sign in through our website. This means your course history and completion certificates are associated with your library card number. If you lose your card, or otherwise have to change your card number, you will lose access to this history. As a precaution, the library recommends you download your certificates as you earn them. If desired, downloaded certificates can also be uploaded to a personal LinkedIn profile.
