Find Material in Your Language


Toronto Public Library offers a Browse by Language option, which can help you find out what books, movies, music and digital content are available at the library in Vietnamese. You can also place holds to request the items you want. Clicking on Vietnamese | Tiếng Việt will take you to the library catalogue.

You can also use the menu on the left-hand side to narrow down your search. 


Mango Languages

Mango languages is a great resource for learning different languages, including English and Vietnamese. The English for Vietnamese speakers (Tiếng Anh Cho Người Việt Nam) section can help native Vietnamese speakers learn English. You can access it for free from Toronto Public Library website's Mango Languages section with your library card.
