World Language Collection
Collection Expanding Soon
With a grant from the Barbara Bush Literacy Corps, we have started a World Language Collection at the Larry J. Ringer Library in College Station. Each book purchased as part of this grant contains a note in the catalog and a bookplate in the book acknowledging Barbara Bush Literacy Corps. Our World Language collection has been moved to a bookcase near the magazines, videos, and adult audiobooks. The call number starts with the name of the language. In our catalog, all the Chinese books are together, but in the lists below, Simplified Chinese (mainland China) and Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong and Taiwan) are listed separately.
Thanks to a grant from the Texas Book Festival, we are in the process of expanding our World Language Collection. We were able to order 101 items. The new books have arrived, and we will update the site with a list of those books and again when the books are ready to be checked out. The Texas Book Festival takes place annually in Austin. The most recent festival was October 22nd and 23rd, 2011.
Please click on a language below to see a list of the books we have purchased in that language with the Barbara Bush Literacy Corps grant. For each book, you can click to request the book. This means that you are on a waiting list for the book. When it is returned, it will go to the person at the top of the waiting list, and when that person returns the book, it goes to the next person. If you need help placing a request (putting a book on hold) or would like to see a printed list of the books in your preferred language, please ask at the Larry J. Ringer Library Reference Desk in person or by calling (979) 764-3416.
