Big, BIG news!

We do Kindle!   After months of watching people's faces turn crestfallen to discover that our free eBooks (available via ListenAlaska) weren't Kindle-compatible, we are overjoyed to announce that Kindle users can now enjoy over 2,200 FREE eBook titles using their Ketchikan Public Library card and ListenAlaska.
When you go to the ListenAlaska site-  - just click on the "Now Available" box on the left (with the picture of a Kindle), and you will get a list of all our Kindle titles.  The MyHelp! feature will take you through the steps of using your Kindle with ListenAlaska.

The other great piece of news is that Digital Pipeline now features the interactive online language-learning tool Mango Languages.  Once you've created your free account, you can access courses on speaking Spanish, French, Japanese, Tagalog....even Pirate!  (That one is a hoot!)  Mango Languages keeps track of your progress and allows you to easily pick up where you left off.  You can even test your pronunciation with your web-mike.

Log on, download and enjoy!!
