10.21.14 We've fielded lots of requests for Rosetta Stone language-learning products. For a long time, the company has been reluctant to sell their products to libraries. Now, however, we can offer you access on our website to Rosetta Stone for Libraries, which includes the first-level lessons for thirty different languages.
