You Can Do That @ the Library?!

Share Your Story

Join a community project, "We Have Stories To Tell" which unites children with family members, senior citizens and library staff to encourage the development of literacy skills through story telling. Children have the opportunity to make their own books in which they portray the story they are telling with illustrations of their own design.

See our Calendar, Online Catalog or Branch pages for more details and contact information.

Learn a Language Online!


Mango Languages online language-learning system is now available! The courses are currently offered in over 35 foreign languages, plus more than 15 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. You can access Mango via the Internet Resources section of the website under Education. With your library card and access to the Internet, you can study remotely from anywhere!

Each language lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture. Users learn actual conversation, breaking down complex conversational elements within an audio-visual framework that allows the user to draw important connections between pieces of information they have already learned.
