Learn a Language

If your summer travels are taking you overseas, consider looking into the online language-learning program Mango. Mango is a free program designed to help you practice your conversational skills in Spanish, French, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Mandarin, Greek, Italian, or Russian. Whether you’re a total newbie or you already have some experience with the language, Mango lets you learn at your own pace.

Getting There & Being There

Audiobooks are a great way to make those long drives and flights go by faster. Once you’re there, check out our ebook collections to bone up on local history or to catch up on your reading list. Maybe you’d prefer to relax after a long day of sightseeing with some streaming video? NPL has you covered.

The library is also the place to go if you’re looking for recommendations for podcasts, or help installing them on your device. (We’re happy to help troubleshoot any issues that you may have with downloadable audiobook and e-books, too.)

Happy travels!
