Learn a New Language the FREE Way

Written By: Librarian - Aug• 17•20

The Oshkosh Public Library is excited to announce that we have subscribed to the MANGO LANGUAGE LEARNING PROGRAM. After researching many other programs, we decided this one is the easiest, quickest, and most complete system.
MANGO has over 70 languages to choose from including Spanish from Latin America and English from the U.S.
We tried the lessons ourselves and thought they were short enough to keep our attention, fast moving enough that we felt like our time wasn’t wasted, and made us speak the new language OUT LOUD so we LEARNED.

One of the best parts of the Mango Language Program is that you can put the Mango app on your phone and study anytime, anywhere!

To use the FREE program, we just need your email address and other basic info from you. You can stop by or email your info to oshkoshlib@gmail.com.

Look how short a lesson is: click on the app, choose your lesson, read and practice out loud several times, read the grammar note. You’re done with lesson one!


Bike Decorating Contest

Click on the above link for ideas on how to easily decorate your bike, wagon, scooter, stroller or whatever for the 4th of July.

Since parades are out this year, the library is sponsoring a bike decorating contest with cash prizes! We will be judging your “vehicle” on July 3rd from 10 am until Noon. All participants will be given a free bicycle horn and a popsicle! We will ask you to ride around town and honk your horn is support of Independence Day and of the past few stressful months that we have all survived. 🙂

After talking to the governor’s office, the Nebraska Library Commission and other area libraries, we have decided to reopen on May 18th, if there are still no Covid cases in Garden County.

Only 6 people will be allowed in the library at one time, they must keep 6 feet away from other people, and all books & DVDs will be quarantined for 3 days after they are returned.

We thank you for your patience and appreciate your understanding of the new rules that may stay in effect for a long time.

Mike is required by his federal employer to stay home during Covid so we had to adjust our hours. I think that after he comes back to work, we will keep Mondays as our long day. We are extremely busy every Monday so that tells us it’s a good day to be open morning until evening!

Here are our newest hours:

Open Mondays 10 am until 6 pm

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 1 pm to 5:30 pm

Friday – Closed until Mike is able to come back to work. When he gets back, we will be open on Fridays, 1-5:30.

Sound okay?

The only things that are different for us during Covid are that we sanitize often, ask people to stand at least 6 feet apart, the kids’ section is closed but we do have kids’ books on carts that they can check out. Also, none of the libraries that we normally inter-library-loan from are loaning books by mail. So we can’t borrow books from other libraries for you.
