#6 Materiales en Español

Ideally, this post on library materials in Spanish would be in Spanish.  Lo siento.  Instead, I ask your assistance in sharing this information with anyone you know who might be interested in our Spanish-language materials. We also have bilingual materials (mostly Spanish/English) in case you are interested in dabbling on your own or with your child.

All the country and state flags where Spanish is a recognized language

Ruidoso Public Library offers fiction (novels) in Spanish, non-fiction (poetry, classics, cookbooks), even a few DVDs and music recordings.  We have ESL (English as a Second Language) materials, some especially for native-Spanish speakers.  These include DVDs to reduce accent.  There are books explaining immigration and naturalization processes, how to live with diabetes, and modern translations, such as The Hunger Games (Los Juegos del Hambre) and coming soon: The Hobbit (El Senor de los Anilos).

@your library has resources, in Spanish and English, on connecting with your children through library visits.  I will let their ad speak for me (Mira el PSA):

The @your library site is full of ideas on how to make a trip to the library a way to learn more about each other, perhaps find a new hobby to share, or help each other with money and saving. Those websites are also available in English.
