PENpals

The talking pen

Children and adults alike now have an engaging and memorable way to practice and hear new languages while they are reading at the Library. Handheld audio devices called Mantra Lingua PENpals are used with specially coded dual language books that allow the listener to read in English and one of over a dozen other languages. Visit the Library to try this new technology with many of our compatible dual language books.
