New Databases Available!

We are pleased to be able to offer two new databases to our patrons, with access made available through the State Library — Mango Languages and Chilton Library. You can utilize these and many of the other databases here in the Library or on your home computer. Some of the databases, such as Learning Express, will require you to set up a free account and others may ask you for patron verification, which will be your library card barcode and last name as password. Be sure to explore all the databases under the Reference tab here on the Library website.
