The Berthoud Community Library Now Offers User-Friendly E-Resources Online


BERTHOUD—December 12, 2013. Ever dreamed of driving a Porsche on the autobahn at 120 mph but never mastered how to sprechen sie Deutsch? Or to sip a chilled Chablis in a café along the Seine, but don’t parlez-vous Francais? Not to worry! If you don’t speak either German or French (or Latin American Spanish, Italian, Japanese or even Pirate), just visit www.berthoudcommunitylibrary.org [1] and begin your language lessons right away. The BCLD now subscribes to Mango Languages, and any patron can click the logo found on the library website’s home page and begin tutorials. There’s an audio component, so you’ll be able to pronounce monsieur et madame, bonjour et bonsoir like a native.

If the kids are bored or simply looking for something fun to do, TumbleBook Library is another great library e-resource that features puzzles and games, story and chapter books, books in Spanish, and a whole lot more. Books in the TBL collection are narrated, and with a click of the mouse, children can “surf” through hours of entertainment and education.

Looking for a new job? Or want to dust off your resume and give it some added polish and flair? The library now offers the e-tool Cypress Resume. In minutes, job seekers will have a completed, professional-grade resume to take to that oh-so-important interview. Impress your next boss to be for free!
