Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.
Book: In the Company of Angels by David Farland
Recommended by: Karen, Senior Librarian
In the Company of Angels is based on the true life adventures of the Willie Handcart Company of 1856. Eliza Gadd is a spunky educated English non-Mormon traveling across the plains with her Mormon husband and children. Although Eliza is deeply in love with her husband and willing to do anything to keep her family together, she is not afraid to question the decisions made by those in charge of the handcart company. Eliza has a scientific mind that she uses to make her decisions and to try to influence her husband. It is not until she is truly tested at Rocky Ridge that she begins to understand her husband's faith in this new religion. Baline Mortensen begins her journey as a playful child from Denmark traveling with friends of her parents. She soon grows from an innocent child to determined young woman with a faith that never falters as she makes this harrowing trek across the plains. In the Company of Angels is a thought-provoking, outstanding read.

The Logan Library is pleased to announce that we now offer Transparent Language software. Transparent Language is an interactive immersion program that enables language learners to take basic vocabulary and quickly progress to more advanced comprehension and use. Grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening, pronunciation skills, and more are emphasized through the use of native language texts, videos, and stories that immerse you in the foreign language.
The Transparent Language software is stored on a USB key. After you check out the Transparent Language software, simply plug the USB drive into any computer and follow the prompts to install the program. The USB acts as a "Key" that allows you to use the program as long as the drive is inserted into your computer. The program remains on your computer and stores all of your information, so you can access it the next time you check out the software from the library.
We offer Transparent Language Software for the following 9 languages:
Remember, in addition to Transparent Language the Library also offers language learning tools on books, CD, and DVD. Contact the library if you have any questions.
