We now have Spanish and Bilingual books shelved before the Juvenile Graphic Novel & Fiction Areas.

The collection includes a variety of picture books, easy readers, and Juvenile & Young Adult chapter books. These books are perfect for Spanish speakers, introducing children to Spanish, middle and high school students keeping up with Spanish skills during the summer, and adults wanted to learn or practice their Spanish skills.

Some titles include La oruga muy hambrienta (The Hungry Caterpillar), El gato ensombrerado (The Cat in the Hat), and Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone). Search for "Spanish Language Material" in the Monarch Catalog and limit to: Availability (Available Now), Type of Material (Book), and Target Audience (Juvenile) on the left side.

This is a growing collection and want to hear from you. Email Trisha Smith at with suggestions!
