So pick up a registration packet and start reading!

New Library eBook and Audiobook Provider

  

 

http://ebook.3m.com/library/denville

We wanted to let all of our fans know that we have switched eBook/downloadable audiobook providers. Many became familiar with Digital Library NJ over the past few years, but we're proud to announce our new partnership with the 3M Cloud Library. As with many things, the selection is starting out on a much smaller scale than what you've grown accustomed to seeing with the prior service. We will be striving to match, and exceed the content Digital Library NJ had, over the coming months.

The eBook portion of the 3M Cloud Library is compatible with Android and iOS devices. It supports the Adobe ePub format, so if your device is capable of using that format, you should be fine. We can't guarantee 100% compatibility with every device. If you are a Kindle user, the bad news is that unless you have a Kindle Fire, the 3M Cloud will not work with your Kindle device. We apologize for the inconvenience!

Try Mango Languages!

Are you tired of using sound recordings, or costly computer programs to help you learn a foreign language? Do you have plans to travel overseas in 2014, but are worried about communicating in a strange land? Do you just want to learn a language for fun?

The library has just the thing for you – Mango Languages. Providing over 30 languages for English speakers to learn from, Mango is a fun, and easy way to pick up a new language. It even has 14 different ESL courses for non-native English speakers.

No check-outs are involved with Mango. The only thing that is needed is a valid Denville Library card and a computer. There is even an app for Android and iOS users, so you can use Mango Languages on the go. (The app requires going onto a computer one time to create an account.)
