Summer Reading Program 2018

Monday, May 28, 2018 - 1:00am to Tuesday, July 31, 2018 - 1:00am

Summer Reading Program (SRP) 2018 begins the day after Memorial Day. This year's theme, Libraries Rock! celebrates music and creativity. The 2018 SRP features one reading round, where each participant reads 20 minutes a day for 20 days. Those who complete the challenge will receive prizes and be entered into the drawing for other prizes. 

Readers of all ages may register any time between May 29 and June 12.

As in years past, a $10.00 Summer Reader Library Card is available from May 29 through August 31. 


Chattanooga Zoo Pass

Chattanooga Zoo has generously provided an annual membership card for the Library that can be checked out once a year per family for one week and used for zoo admission for 2 adults and up to 4 children per visit.  (If the card is lost, a $30 lost fee will be charged, and if it is returned late, a $4 per day overdue fine will be charged.)  There is a waiting list for the two Zoo Passes that we have, so place your hold now!  
 
This partnership furthers the Chattanooga Zoo's commitment to education and their mission to engage and inspire our community to better understand and preserve wildlife by creating meaningful connections between people and animals.

Rosetta Stone

Rosetta Stone
 
Friends of Collegedale Public Library have helped make available to library patrons the popular language learning tool, Rosetta Stone. All you need to get started is your library card and a computer with Internet access. (Add some headphones and a microphone in order to reap the full benefits of the program.) From the first lesson, you'll have the opportunity to listen to native speakers in each chosen language and to respond using a microphone, receiving instant feedback on how to improve pronunciation.
 
Rosetta Stone offers 30 different languages, and you can take your pick from any language and any level of instruction. You'll find hours' worth of foundational instruction that includes core reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills lessons; grammar and vocabulary activities; and more.
 
Choose one of the following 30 languages that are available via Rosetta Stone: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Dari, Dutch, English (American), English (British), Filipino (Tagalog), French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Pashto, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish (Latin American), Spanish (Spain), Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
 
Access Rosetta Stone from the Electronic Resources page on the Library website, and consider becoming a member of Friends of Collegedale Public Library to help bring more resources like this to our local library.

2018 Reading Challenge

Library staff members, Paul, Kelly and Malissa have developed a Reading Challenge designed to help readers choose materials from outside their typical reading “bubble” in order to find new literary likes and interests and encourage discussion among participants.

Pick up a paper copy of the Reading Challenge at the Library or link to the Library Goodreads Page and click on the link  for 2018 Reading Challenge to follow or join the discussion!
