Bossier Parish Libraries are happy to announce there are several new services coming soon. I will go into greater detail in future columns but for now here is a quick overview.
On September 1, Pronunciator, a language-learning service will replace Mango Languages. Pronunciator has 80 languages to choose from for grades K—12 as well as college level. Each interactive language course has a minimum of 1,500 phrases to learn, and most have 10,000 phrases. http://www.pronunciator.com/languages/
Sixteen book club kits have been ordered and are beginning to arrive. Each kit includes 12 books with activities all neatly packed in a tote bag that can be checked out for up to six weeks at a time.
Flipster is an online magazine service that allows patrons to check out magazines electronically and viewed on iPads, iPhones, and other electronic devices. We have ordered 50 magazines to start with and hope to add more in the future.
Look for great things happening at Bossier Parish Libraries.
