How do I find books and movies in my language?...

April 20, 2011 | Maciek | Comments (0)

You probably know that Cedarbrae library has a number of collections in languages other than English: 

Bengali (books, DVDs)
Chinese (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines)
French (books, DVDs, CDs, CD audiobooks, graphic novels, magazines)
Gujarati (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines)
Hindi (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines in Indic English and Hindi)
Korean (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines)
Persian (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines)
Polish (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines)
Tagalog (books, DVDs, CDs)
Tamil (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines)
Urdu (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines)

We also have Arabic, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Punjabi, Russian and Spanish magazines.

You might have noticed that our collections are slightly different from what they used to be before the renovation - that's because we sometimes relocate them, and put them in branches where they are most likely to be accessed (it's all based on the information provided by the census data). Toronto's map of communities is constantly changing and we try to respond to that.

And, the most important: through our website, you DO have access to all items in your language! They can be requested and we'll deliver them to the branch of your choice. You can also display a complete list of all library items in a given language - just go to the Advanced Search, choose the language and press "Search" (without typing anything). Then, using the panel on the left, you can narrow it down further (books, CDs, DVDs, children's items, etc.).

So, need a science fiction novel in French? Or a list of Spanish DVDs?... Chinese audio books for children?... simply choose the requested options.

Welcome! This blog is written by the Cedarbrae Library staff and we want it to become a place where you can find out what's going on in the branch and in the community. But not just that - we plan to write about all things we might find interesting.
