Grant Expands Library's Spanish Collection

The library was recently awarded a Library Services and Technology Act Hispanic grant in the amount of $7500. The majority of the funds will be used to purchase Spanish books and videos, and some of the funds will be used for staff training in conversational Spanish.

Department supervisors have nearly completed the process of selecting materials for the library's collection. Materials are available on the bookmobile as well as the main library building. At the library, all Spanish materials are located in the reference section, on the second level of the library.

The main focus of this project is to provide a larger collection of Spanish and bilingual materials to the Hispanic community in Henry County. As a result of this project, Spanish-speaking community members will have the recreational and educational library materials they need for personal growth and lifelong learning.

This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Indiana State Library.
