February Featured Database - Transparent Language

Hola! Здравствуйте! Bon jour! Guten Tag! Dzień dobry! nǐ hǎo (你好)! Bozhoo!

Those are ways to say "hello" in Spanish, Russian, French, German, Polish, Chinese and Ojibwe. You can learn all of these and more with our new database, Transparent Language.

Have you ever wanted to learn a new language? Would you like to refresh a language you learned long ago but don't really remember? Did you grow up with another language but want to learn it more formally? You can do all of these with Transparent Language. You can even download this to your phone or tablet to practice anywhere. Click here to learn how.

There's even a special section for kids ages 6 and up called Kidspeak. Instructions are here.

Simply click here or on the Transparent Language icon on our website.  If accessing from somewhere other than the Lodi Library, you will need your library card.  Sign up for an account using the middle tab that says "SIGN UP."  There you will create a user name and password that you will use to log on in the future. Get ready to start your language adventure!

Coffee Break @ the Library

Parents -- Bring you little ones to the Library for some FREE play while you enjoy a steaming cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate!

On the last Wednesday of the month from 9:30-10:30 a.m. we are turning the “Shake, Rattle & Roll Baby” and “Family Story Time” over to you. While your children play under the supervision of a Librarian, you can catch up with your friends.

Hot drinks are courtesy of the Library.

After School Club is back! Tuesdays 4:00pm at the library

What do Banana Surgery, Celebrity Head, Balloon Smash, and Aardvark Relay all have in common?  They are all games that we will be playing with After School Club starting up again the FIRST TUESDAY IN MARCH!  These are not your average "sit still and be quiet" kind of games.  Oh no.  These are silly, lively, team building games to let you unwind after a long day at school.  Be prepared to laugh, be entertained, and let your goofy side show (you do have one, right?)!

No need to register, drop in is fine!

February bookclub Monday 2/18/2019 Today!

Stop in and pick up the next book for the bookclub discussion on February 18, 2019 at 7pm. We have still both print and audio versions available for immediate checkout.

February's book is Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman. Here is a brief description from Goodreads:

"In this new anthology, Neil Gaiman pierces the veil of reality to reveal the enigmatic, shadowy world that lies beneath. Trigger Warning includes previously published pieces of short fiction--stories, verse, and a very special Doctor Who story that was written for the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved series in 2013--as well "Black Dog," a new tale that revisits the world of American Gods, exclusive to this collection."

For more information on this book, click here, Goodreads

This year, we will be choosing books from the Goodreads award winners from 2013-2015.

Hope to see you at the library!
