Hattiesburg Library Virtual Services to Enjoy for Free

The Library of Hattiesburg Petal & Forrest County offers way more than just e-books (although it has those too). Whether you want to learn a new language, watch the best of British television, or read the latest bestselling books, our local library has you covered. Here are a few ways you can take advantage of these Hattiesburg library virtual services from our apartments in Hattiesburg:

Rocket Languages 

When Rocket Languages co-founder Jason Oxenham was studying French, he attended classes, stocked up on textbooks, and tried an array of software programs. But nothing worked. That’s when he partnered with his friend Mark to create Rocket Languages. They were the first to offer online learning language courses, and use real-life conversations to teach the most important grammar and vocabulary. Rocket students enjoy more than 120 hours of lessons per level. Languages include Russian, German, and Spanish.

Axis 360 

Through Axis 360, you’ll have access to thousands of e-books ranging from the classics to the latest New York Times bestsellers. You can download e-books in a variety of formats to fit your technology needs. For an unforgettable read, try Walk the Wire. Released in April 2020, it tells the story of Amon Decker, an FBI profiler with a perfect memory. He faces his toughest challenge yet when he’s called to investigate a murder in a booming North Dakota oil town.

Acorn TV

Acorn TV offers the best in British television and film. Thousands of hours are presented commercial-free, and with new shows added weekly, so there’s always something new to discover. One of the most popular choices is Murdoch Mysteries, which tells the story of turn-of-the-century detective William Murdoch. It’s the late 1890s, and he’s taking a new approach to solving crimes. With the help of Constable Crabtree and the local coroner, he introduces finger marks, lie detecting machines, and more.
