If you ever wanted to learn to speak a new language, now is the time!  The library renewed its subscription to Mango Languages with the help of a donation from the United Partnership for a Better Community. Last year the library received a literacy grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation that covered the entire cost of the service for the first year. Over 390 users logged in 420 hours during 1700 sessions of online instruction!

Mango offers a fun, fast, effective, and convenient solution to our community's growing language-learning needs. This user-friendly online service is free for all Wauconda library cardholders. Choose from 61 difference language courses, 18 of which teach English for non-English speakers.
