GET IN THE GAME Host a Mid-Winter Mango Party. Create a Mango flash mob. Use QR codes in a fun way to direct people to your Mango web page. Marigold libraries have an opportunity to win a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet, a Logitech Headset with microphone, a set of 20 Lonely Planet travel guide books and a big basket of Mango swag!

The Alberta Library recently announced the Mango Mania Contest. This is an opportunity for Marigold member libraries to win great prizes by promoting Mango language learning software to their communities. Libraries that develop and implement a promotion that raises community awareness of Mango could win a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet, a Logitech Headset with microphone, a set of 20 Lonely Planet travel guide books and a big basket of Mango swag.

Mango online language learning tools are an easy and convenient way for all kinds of people to build their practical conversation skills in the world’s most popular languages.

The Alberta Library expects the contest to raise awareness of this valuable resource made possible through an investment by the Alberta government. “The more the library community promotes Mango, the more Albertans will use it,” says Clive Maishment, CEO of The Alberta Library. “Boosting the number of Mango users across the province will increase the likelihood that the provincial license for Mango will be renewed in 2013, so everybody benefits.”

Find out more by reviewing the contest information. The deadline for submissions is March 16, 2012 and the contest is open to any TAL‐member library. Contest winners will be profiled at the Alberta Library Conference in Jasper in April 2012.
