I want to introduce you to two new virtual services that we are adding.
Pronunciator is our new language learning database. It is a fun and free way to learn any of 80 languages with self-directed lessons, live teachers, movies, music, and more. You can learn a language from any language of your choice. That means that if Spanish or Japanese or whatever is your native language and that is the base that you want to learn another language from you can. So Spanish speakers can learn English for example. Children also can learn, their lessons are geared specifically for ages 3-6 or 7-12. There is an 8-week travel prep course also. All you need is your Chickasha Public Library card number and internet access. The Library provides internet access and computers if you need them. There is also a mobile app. Here is the link: http://learning.pronunciator.com/getstarted.php?library_id=189899969
Alternatively, go the Library’s web page and click on e-resources and scroll down.
