Did you know that the Toronto Public Library carries over 3500 materials in the Arabic language? With thousands of materials for adults, teens and children, let us help you find your next favourite Arabic book or movie! We can also make it easier for you to learn Arabic in many different ways – books, audiobooks or online. Welcome to Arabic at your library! مرحبا بكم في اللغة العربية في مكتبتك  

There are seven locations that carry Arabic collections. The largest Arabic collection is at the Toronto Reference Library. Other locations that carry Arabic are the Agincourt, Albion, Fairview, Don Mills, Maryvale and York Woods branches.

A wonderful way to share the joy of reading with children who speak or are learning to speak another language is through dual-language books. Dual-language books tell the story in English and another language. We have a great selection of Arabic and English dual-language books for children.

Here are some of my personal favourites:

Brown Bear Brown Bear   Splash!   The Very Hungry Caterpillar   We're Going on a Bear Hunt

If you are looking to explore our Arabic collection, have a look at these links to our great collection of Arabic Books, DVDs, audiobooks & music.

Travelling somewhere and need to learn Arabic on the go? Try using Mango Languages to learn Arabic. Our Overdrive collection also has a number of titles to help you learn Arabic. Or explore a world of titles in hoopla.
