Get Help with the Library
If you are thinking about your New Year's resolutions already, you may be surprised to learn that the library has many resources to aid you with your journey.
If you read my blog last week, you will have noticed 3 sub-menus under our Books & eLibrary tab. The first two tabs on the left help you with finding books. The third tab is called eLearning where you will see several sub-menu items like: Learn a Language, Test Prep, All Online Resources, etc.
What follows here are several different resources that you may not know about on our website:
- learning a new language
- test taking
- other subjects that may be related to your New Year's resolution
Learn a New Language
People have told me that they learned a new language by either settling in a foreign country for a few years to teach English or by taking a language course at school, or even by watching soap operas in a foreign language!
Learn conversational skills and grammar in Pronunciator and conversational skills in Mango, including Pirate!
If you have time to prep for tests, the library has resources for that! It seems like a great time to study for tests during the shelter in place.
If you hover over Books & eLibrary, you will notice Test Prep under eLearning.
