Librarians and teachers encourage parents to read to their children, but the truth is that everyone can benefit from being read to. If you listen to an audiobook, you’re not “cheating.” You’ve put in dedicated hours and have received all the benefits of reading a book, gaining new perspectives, ideas, or pure entertainment.

What Do You Like About Gale Courses?
Colorful graphic with picture of a city. Text reads: "Real Reviews of Gale Courses: A great method of teaching Spanish. The course covered a great deal of information. I feel I now have the tools I need to speak the language. Class: Speed Spanish."

This feedback from one of our patrons says it all. Over 350 classes available for free.... can it get any better??
