Have you always wanted to start learning a foreign language to expand your horizons, or maybe to brush up on your high school or college languages? Just go to our library’s web page, at http://ccitypl.org . Choose the “Inspire” button, scroll down to “Rosetta Stone” and you can study any of 30 languages, at “Level 1” for free. Thank you to the Indiana State Library for making this database available to our patrons.
I’d like to send a big thank you out to the fabulous Chords of Friendship for treating everyone to a lovely evening of dulcimer, ukulele, guitar, flute, and vocal folk music this past week. Their songs had me humming along and tapping my feet.
