Keeping Current in the Sea of “E”

Do you ever feel like you are barely treading water in the ever-shifting tides of the ebook sea?  Wondering how to keep afloat in the e-content ocean?  The EREC and ACLA Downloadables Committees are in the same boat.

Have a favorite of your own?  Tell us about it in the comments!

Mango Mobile App

“Kids these days, all they do is update their Facebook and play Angry Birds on their phones all day.  They are completely out of touch with real human interaction!”

Now you can show them that you are using your smartphone for good, to learn some new skills! Mango Languages recently added apps for Android™ and iPhone. With this app, you and your patrons now have access to language learning wherever you go.
(Just don’t try to learn languages while you are driving on the Parkway)
How much does this interactive, portable, and all around awesome application cost users?  It’s FREE –  and is included in your library’s Mango subscription.
