East Baton Rouge Parish Library

A lack of state funding for digital language-learning resources resulted in a switch from Mango Languages to Pronunciator in Louisiana. An overwhelming outpouring from staff and patrons prompted a quick change of course at East Baton Rouge Parish Library.

Andrew Tadman at East Baton Rouge Parish Library was in a tough predicament. A lack of proper state funding caused a switch from Mango Languages to Pronunciator. To put it lightly, things didn’t go well. Once the change was announced, there was a huge outpouring from his staff and patrons pleading to keep Mango. Andrew was so amazed by the level of their passion that he decided the best move was to keep Mango, which he did.

“It’s really rare that people are so passionate about a resource that we offer. That just shows how well liked Mango is.”

-Andrew Tadman, Reference Coordinator, East Baton Rouge Parish Library
