We value community input and appreciate receiving recommendations and suggestions.
As part of the Provincial/Federal Early Years Grant, Provincial Library received funding to purchase new children's multilingual books. Thanks to this funding, Provincial Library added nearly 9000 new children's books to the collection in over 20 languages, including three new languages: Nepali, Malayalam and Somali.
The Provincial Library and Literacy Office (PLLO) has more than 70,000 books in over twenty-five languages, including Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Dutch, German, Greek, Gujarati, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Panjabi/Punjabi, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Ukrainian, Urdu, and Vietnamese. We have also recently added children's material in the following languages: Nepali, Malayalam, and Somali. The multilingual collection has fiction and non-fiction books for children and adults.
Individuals interested in borrowing multilingual books can either search the catalogue and place a hold using their public library card, or contact their local public library branch to see what language books they carry.
