New Cost for Black and White Copies

The library has changed the price of black and white copies to 15¢ apiece. Color copies will remain the same price at 25¢ apiece.

Mango Languages

We have expanded our language tutorials to include Mango Languages. Like Rosetta Stone, that we have in our study rooms, Mango Languages teaches through interaction. Mango also teaches about the cultures of the countries where people speak those languages.

If your email address is on file at the library, you will start receiving notifications three days before your library materials are due. If you would like to receive these notifications but have not given your email address, please visit the circulation desk on your next visit to the library.

Keyboarding Practice

Do you get frustrated using a computer because you type slowly and make errors? We have a solution! The Library's word processing computers now have Mavis Beacon typing tutorial software installed. Come in whenever the library is open to get started. A valid Speedway Library card is required to access the word processing computers.

Adult Literacy Books

The library now has a collection of adult literacy books available for checkout. These are books for beginning adult readers and their tutors. They are high interest, contemporary stories with a low reading level.
 
You can find the adult literacy collection in the Reference Room. These books may be checked out five at a time for three weeks.
 
This collection is a result of the Long Range Planning Committee’s hard work and dedication.
