The library has two new online services availabe through our website (look for the icons at the bottom of the main page). Both databases require an Edwardsville library card. You then create an account to track your class progress. They are both really amazing databases!

Mango offers 34 languages courses online.  Each utilizes intuitive interactive tools for practical conversational skills. Lessons include memory-building exercises to help you remember what you are learning and intuitively understand the language. You have the option to start learning right away as an anonymous user or to create a profile, which will allow you to track your progress and time spent learning each language. You can also download an app for iPhones

Universal Class offers 500 continuing education non-credit classes, from math and digital photography to event planning, meditation, and knitting.  You are welcome to enroll in up to 5 courses and you have 6 months to finish each.  Attend class and do assignments on your schedule. Each course has a real instructor with whom you may communicate using email.
