Welcome to a practice English conversation with Dialogue Frog.
So, we're at the library.
Yes! So, very cool. Libraries have a lot more than books these days.
Yep. It's true.
Although I've always loved libraries because I love books-
-but modern libraries, especially in towns or communities that are larger and have better support, they have all kinds of cool stuff. You can check out, not only books, movies, video games, board games, audio books, even- you can get an app where you can download eBooks and they sometimes have like computer labs or recording studios.
As in the case here.
As in the case here, this is pretty cool.
It is. I feel like we sound like-
Broadcast radio. Very cool stuff.
Yeah. Libraries are, are a really good resource for, uh, lots of different things.
Well, I'm glad you're here too, Luke, because it has like this, all this recording technology is something that you already know how to work. So, that's one part of it. To be able to use the resources, sometimes you need to have the, the know-how.

In this practice English conversation, Luke and Emma talk about the modern public library or the next generation of libraries. ‘Next generation libraries’ are becoming popular in big cities and have many new services.
In the video from TEDx Talks below, librarian Rebecca Raven talks about how libraries have changed because of the internet. Libraries used to be a place where people looked for information and content. Now, because many people use the internet to find information and content instead, libraries are changing to become ‘maker spaces’ and to help build and support ‘digital literacy’ in their communities. This video contains many useful vocabulary words for talking about libraries and communities.
