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. A June 2014 study from the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Cognitive Aging and Cognitive Epidemiology says if you learn a second language—even in adulthood—it can stave off dementia for at least a few years. 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.

The Michigan Department of Education announced the SAT will be the state-required free college entrance exam starting in spring of 2016. Since 2007, the ACT was the state's free test. Current students preparing to take the ACT this spring will do so as planned, but changes go into effect starting next year. The College Board, which administers the SAT, won its competitive bid which will be a cost-savings to taxpayers in the long run. To learn more, click here. The Library offers free ACT or SAT test preparation from the LearningExpress Library on our databases page with a Canton library card.
