For those trying to learn a new language, our city library is here to help. Mango Languages, an online language-learning resource, is now available for free to card holders in the Santa Clarita Public Library system.

The languages available include Spanish, French, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Mandarin Chinese, Greek, Italian, and Russian. English as a Second Language (ESL) courses are in languages including Spanish, Portuguese, and Polish.
