 language courses: Yes, you can spark new brain cells! The spontaneous growth of new brain cells can occur at any point in your life. It’s specifically spurred by a number of activities, a key one being learning new things, like a second or third language.

Turns out learning a second language in adulthood can promote memory, improve multitasking skills, increase attention, and more. Canton Public Library offers two online programs: Mango and Pronunciator to CPL cardholders.
