Going global in Avondale

Did you know that our free library in Avondale has a shelf of books in Spanish and French? We have a number of children’s books, as well as some young adult and adult books. Accessibility and literacy are both very important to us, so we want to ensure that everyone in our community finds something that they can enjoy in any language. Our next project is expanding the shelf to include books in other languages as well!

We have a few children’s books in Spanish available on the book cart outside, but the majority are on our indoor shelf, labeled “Global.” Our current favorite find is a collection of classic folk tales with side-by-side translations in Spanish and English. Come pick it up while it’s still here!
