New Online Language Learning Program

There is a new online language learning program called Mango Languages now available! Mango replaces TELL ME MORE and offers additional languages in an easy-to-use format for all computer platforms. MangoLanguages is an effective learning tool that focuses on everyday conversation. This program provides step-by-step lesson plans for the following languages:
  • Spanish
  • English
  • Mandarin Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Russian
To use Mango from outside the library you will need a valid library card number and PIN. One nice feature of Mango is that you can use it with or without signing up for an account (although you still need your card number and PIN). If you want to take a quick look, there is a Skip Login option (once you are on the MangoLanguages page) that allows you to use Mango anonymously. If you do sign up for a Mango account, it will keep track of your language lessons.

Library Closed

We will be closed Friday, April 10th and Saturday, April 11th in observance of the Easter holiday. We will resume normal hours on Monday, April 13th.
