FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY BOOKSALE

Our next booksale takes place Friday through Sunday, November 21, 22, 23. As always, members of the Friends group may come on Thursday for the Preview Sale.

We are especially grateful to the Friends for their generous donation to our Museum Pass Program this year. Many member families have enjoyed an educational and fun day at the Long Island Children's Museum, totally free, courtesy of these passes, paid for by the Friends!

Please consider joining the Friends group and the volunteers who help out to fundraise for the library.

 

SPANISH LANGUAGE SERVICES WEBPAGE

You can now locate our Spanish Lanuage Services by clicking on the Departments link in the left menu of our website. We hope you are finding our programs informative and fun. If you have suggestions for more materials or programs, please e-mail Pia Ramirez at canaria@whplibrary.org.

FREE LANGUAGE LESSONS USING MANGO, ONLINE OR MOBILE!

Have you tried the Mango Languages online language-learning system yet? It's a fun and easy way to prepare for your next holiday!

Learning a new language with Mango Languages is free - just enter your Library Card Number to get started, or create a login ID to keep track of your progress. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio with simple, clear instructions.

You can choose a Foreign language for English speakers or an English course for non-English speakers, or a Specialty course that helps you celebrate a world culture by learning the vocabulary and expressions of a native speaker.

 

ONLINE PROGRAM REGISTRATION!

Did you know that if you have a library card, you can now register for most of our programs online using our Event Calendar? Just go to the starting date of the class, click on "Register" and enter your library barcode.

Remember that when the program charges a fee, you have 72 hours to bring your check (or cash if indicated) into the library, otherwise your registration will be cancelled. We do not yet have online payments, but we are working on it. Patrons may still register in person, as always

 

UPDATED KINDLE COLLECTION

Our Kindles come pre-loaded with a collection of NY Times bestsellers that we update periodically, so you will have a nice selection of both fiction and non-fiction books from which to choose.

 

 

DATABASES AND HOMEWORK HELP!

Now that students are back in school, remember that our online tutoring site and homework resources are always available 24/7 directly at www.whplibrary.org/research, or navigate from our homepage using the menu on the left. Hover over, or click on "Online Services" then click on "Databases for eResearch."

In the box on the right side of each of our database pages, you'll find our subject listing as well as a link to our alphabetical list of all of our databases and online tools to help you in your research and browsing.
Search these valuable ebooks and articles! (You'll need to enter your library barcode, so have it handy.)
