Learn a Language

Bonjour! Bienvenue à BCPL!

That's French for Hello! Welcome to BCPL! You don't have to go to school to learn simple dialog in a different language. Your library has several resources available to help you prepare for speaking in another country's native tongue. Whether you need a small grasp of inquiries for travel or an in-depth course to make you fluent for more career opportunities, we can help you with that!

Audiobooks & DVDs

BCPL's catalog includes many language-learning sound and video recordings, as well as nonfiction resources like dictionaries. Audio resources are available in both physical CD format and through our online partners in e-format.
