Dear Summit Free Public Library patrons and community members,

As we enter into October, I hope that you are enjoying the transition into the autumn weather and the 2022-2023 school year! In the spirit of a new school year and continued, lifelong learning, I am happy to announce that we have added a new language learning platform called Mango Languages.

Mango is a self-paced language learning app that can be downloaded to multiple devices or used on any computer with an internet connection. Your Summit Library card grants you full access to the complete collection of more than 70 different languages. It’s an easy, free way to take your language practice with you on the go. Getting started is easy:

Step 1: Click here to create a profile.

Step 2: Select your language course. Choose from over 70 world languages, including English.

Step 3: Download the mobile app! Go to your app store, search Mango Languages, and download the app to all your preferred mobile devices for language learning anywhere, and everywhere that you learn best!

Happy learning! For a full view of the Library’s language learning resources, visit our new Language Learning page on our website. As always, if there is anything that we at the Library can do to better meet your needs, please feel free to contact me at or (908) 277-9455.
