Reviews of Brooklyn Public Library
Attended: Intro to Radio Podcasting
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am very disappointed. I did not actually have an experience. I showed for class on the first day early only to be told that the class was not at the listed address(Brooklyn Library, Main Branch). I was at the New Lots branch. I had to get on another train and ride 25 minutes. I commuted from New Jersey, by the way. So I get to the New Lots location and the instructor ask to see my confirmation. I show him and he informs me that although my confirmation stated that I was enrolled and that the class was free, the class is actually $50.
That wasn't the biggest issue. He then tells me that I have to leave because I am not a Brooklyn resident.
I really would like to be placed in another class for podcasting to compensate me for my time and energy.

Attended: Jewelry Making
I was clumsy with the wire and cutting at first, but with Ms. Alicia's patient and friendly manner of teaching, and giving us individual attention, that soon went away.
I left with a beautiful chain (MY creation, effort and energy!) and showed it off at work on Monday.
Looking forward to another class with Ms. Alicia.
Attended: Open Level Lab: Microsoft Office
Because it was cancelled and we were not notified was standing over 1 hour. It would have been food to been advised by Course Horse.then again whatever, maybe you don't know in advance
Attended: Motion Graphics with After Effects
The class was great, however coursehorse listed the class as FREE, which is was not.
Additionally, when I showed up I hadn't actually been enrolled, which makes me wonder why I bothered signing up through coursehorse...
this has happened to me before. User beware, maybe sign up at the actual website of the course.
Attended: QuickBooks for Business 102
