At present, STL does not have many texts or media resources to help you learn Latin on your own.  SUNY New Paltz and other SUNYs may offer courses in Latin.  Here are links to New Paltz's Schedule of Classes and to OpenSUNY courses.

Public Library systems may offer more resources, including links to online language learning.  You will need to be a member of those library systems to access those databses (members of the SUNY New Paltz community are not automatically members.)
