On our shelves, we have books, magazines, DVDs and some newspapers in a wide range of languages.
These language collections are shelved separately from the English language collection and include adult fiction and non-fiction (factual information), junior fiction and non-fiction and picture books.
To help you, each item has a short code on the spine to show which language it is in and children's books are also marked with a 'J'.

Each library has a slightly different collection and some specialise in particular languages. Search the library catalogue, call us on 9789 9423 or ask a librarian where to find the language you are looking for.
We can borrow books in an even wider range of languages from the State Library of NSW. Please ask at your local library for more information. This is a free service.
In our eLibrary, you will find even more reading options in your language on your computer, tablet or smartphone.
