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. Our most recent titles were added as of February, 6, 2015.
