The 6 most popular languages people are learning in Mango Languages are Spanish (Latin America), French, English, Japanese, Russian and Pirate (for those traveling to the Caribbean?). But you are not limited to those six, there are 70 languages overall to choose from. Mango makes it easy, once you open an account, by tracking your activities and progress.
If you want to learn a few phrases before traveling out of the country give Mango a try. If you are visiting from another country, Mango can help improve your English. You decide how much time to devote to it, you decide when to hold your ‘classes’. Give it a try for free through the State Library of Kansas! Click on the link below
Summer is a great time to begin the race down the track! We add new board books, easy readers and picture books to our catalog over the summer. Any and everyone can read to your preschooler and all you have to do is make a tally mark on the bright green paper. Once there are 100 tallies, bring the paper in to the Library to move the car down the track and your child picks a prize. You can read 1,000 different books or one books 1,000 times. Remember, those tally marks are verification, so don’t forget to bring in some proof of how many books you’ve read! Get everyone involved! Sign up today, it will go a lot faster than you think!
How long does it take to read 1,000 books? Well, someone, somewhere figured it out for us: 1 book per day for 3 years = 1,000 books; 10 books per week for 2 years = 1,040 books; 3 books per day for 1 year = 1,095 books. So, not long at all!
Spring has sprung and so has the chance for severe weather. As a reminder our policy for severe weather is that if the tornado sirens sound we will lock the doors and patrons will be escorted to the basement for shelter. If a patron chooses he/she may leave the building before the doors are locked. Parents please talk with your children about tornado warnings and our policy before sending them to the library. Â If you have any questions about our weather policy please visit with the librarian.
Nemaha Central High School and Seneca Free Library have joined to forces in the Guys Read program. Guys Read is a program encouraging guys to read. A book club has been formed that will pair a male mentor with high school guys to read and discuss books. If you would like more information about the program visit the library or talk with Marcia Philbrick at the high school.
