Rosetta Stone Makes Changes
Last year Birmingham Public Library and the Jefferson County Library Cooperative first offered Rosetta Stone to the entire county. With over 20 different languages to choose from, this has been a very popular product.
Unfortunately, Rosetta Stone has made a business decision to no longer allow libraries to subscribe to their complete offering of languages.
With the expiration of our contract on December 1, 2007, the libraries of Jefferson County will be given two options. Both options offer a limited number of languages. When we know what languages will be offered, we will let you know.
Rosetta Stone is a great resource and an excellent way to learn a language. Please contact your local library if you have any questions.
