Looking for updates on library services?

Library services are currently paused.

The library is currently closed—and all services are paused—as we move to a temporary facility at 2725 Mall Drive in preparation for our construction/expansion project (starting in May). Staff will be unavailable to answer questions through April 25, but most digital services remain available. Check back for updates!

Free with your library card! Mango Languages offers over 70 world languages and dialects through courses crafted using conversational methodology. Every self-paced language course introduces the learner to cultural insights and grammatical nuances specific to their language of choice, delivered through native speaker dialogue, and created with each individual learner in mind.
