Library News
By Susan Anderson

Spring has entered in and summer is peeking around the corner. Let the Bethel Public Library help you plan a season of fun and adventure, near and far.

If you are getting ready for a trip, it's time to check the travel section of the Library for a wealth of information about your favorite destination. Traveling to a non-English speaking country?

Then you'll need to check out the Mango Languages database. Mango is an online language-learning system available to Bethel patrons. You can learn Spanish, French, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, and many languages. It also contains ESL courses. Your Bethel Public Library card number is required. The Library also has a subscription to SCOLA, which receives and re-transmits foreign TV programming from around the world and provides other foreign language resources, language lessons, and language learning materials. This latter database is accessible only from within the Library.

Staying close to home? Keep in mind that Connecticut has many attractions, and the Friends of the Library generously sponsors museum passes for nearly two dozen, including the Beardsley Zoo, the Maritime Museum and Aquarium, and the New Britain Museum of American Art.

Passes provide free or reduced admission prices and are available for Bethel residents. Passes may be reserved in advance.

Finally, there is no need to go any farther than your hometown Library for lots of learning and fun. Stay tuned for information about the Library's Summer Reading celebration, which will include events for children, teens, and adults. This year's theme is "A Universe of Stories." Now that sounds like an adventure!
