Books for All Young Readers

Anne Arundel County Library adds bilingual children’s books

To inspire love of reading in every child, the Anne Arundel County Public Library has added bilingual children’s materials, dividing 500 copies of 100 titles among the county’s libraries at all 15 branches. The World Languages Collection supplements the library’s Spanish bilingual books with new board books in Urdu, Chinese and Vietnamese, the top four languages spoken by families in county public schools.
    “The library is for everyone in our community, and we are committed to providing materials for our non-English-speaking residents,” said library head Hampton ‘Skip’ Auld. “While the new materials are written to appeal to young children, they can be used by the entire family as they learn basic English vocabulary together.”
