For the New Year, CPL conducted an online survey asking patrons what they would like to accomplish in 2017. We compiled lists of resources and programs that will help you meet those goals this year, so look out for more blog posts that address the goals we read from your surveys.
For patrons who hope to learn a new language or improve skills in another language in 2017, you can utilize our language databases to get a jump-start on your goals:
Basic ESL — learn English quickly and effectively with relevant topics including family, home, school and more
Mango Languages — learn Spanish, Japanese and more on your computer or mobile device
Pronunciator — learn any of 80 languages, including many ESL courses, on your computer or mobile device (Canton Public Library card required)
Or you can join a club to improve your English language skills:
ELL Conversation Groups — Practice speaking English in an informal setting with Community Literacy Council volunteers. Meets every Thursday and Friday that the library is open.
Beginning/Intermediate ELL Book Club — Beginning or Intermediate English Language Learners are invited to read together and discuss short articles, etc., in English with a tutor. Meets every-other Friday at noon.
Advanced ELL Book Club — Advanced English Language Learners read and discuss books in English. Books will be discussed until finished. Meets every-other Friday at noon.
