This is a self-paced program that is available for patrons who would like to learn a new language. There are currently 70 foreign languages and 17 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. These are divided into multiple sections based on the language.
To get to Mango, click on the Mango link you will find displayed in each of these three places:
Whichever location you use to access Mango, you will find yourself at the library’s online catalog. Here, you will need to login to the catalog with your library card number and your phone number (don’t include area code and omit the dash between the first three numbers and the last four numbers.) Once you log into the catalog successfully, you will then be able to click on the Mango link and get started from there.
Creating a Mango Account
When you log on for the first time, Mango will prompt you to create a profile. This will be your individual account that allows you to track your progress over the course of your studies.
When you create a profile via the library’s website, either at the library or from home, work, etc., you will be required to enter your patron barcode number along with your e-mail address and password. To enter your patron barcode successfully, it must be six digits, so add zeros at the beginning of the barcode number until you’ve reached a total of six numbers.
After you have created a profile, Mango will e-mail you with a link to activate your account. Once the account is activated successfully, Mango will send another e-mail verifying that.
You also have the option of clicking on the Start Learning button to bypass setting up an account. You will need to enter your patron barcode number.
Have fun! Please contact the library if you have any questions.
