It is so easy-from September 2nd-30th, get a “library passport” from any participating library, and then visit at least 5 different libraries to get a stamp in said passport.
Return it to any participating library by October 4th and you’re entered to win either a $150 Visa Gift Card (adult) or $100 Visa Gift Card (youth).
To borrow from Ina Garten, “How easy is that?”
For more information, stop by any service desk and we’ll get you started!

Traveling? Learn the language before you take off! Our new database, Mango Languages, can help you learn Spanish, French, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Mandarin Chinese, Greek, Italian & more! Mango includes 47 languages and 15 ESL courses that teach English in popular native languages. Mango is free for all Stratford Library patrons, and offers a fast and convenient solution for our community’s increasing language-learning needs. Patrons can use Mango at the library, at home, or on –the-go with free apps for iPhone, iPod touch and Android.
Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture.
Whether you need to learn a second language for business or travel reasons or just because it would be interesting, learning a language with Mango is fun and easy.
To learn more about Mango and get a preview of what the program has to offer, stop by the library and we will give you an introduction. Even better, if you have your library card and have access to the Internet, you can access the actual courses remotely from anywhere! You can access Mango via the library’s website at www.stratfordlibrary.org. For more information, contact Stratford Library at 203.385.4164
