Language South Lending Library

NEW Language South Lending Library

Check out books from our Language South lending library in Spanish, French and Chinese!

If you’re a beginning or intermediate learner of a new language, we think graded readers are one of the best resources you can use to make progress. You’ll find more about graded readers in this blog. In today’s post, we want to tell you about our new lending library here in Chattanooga, TN!

Here are the details:

What? Our lending library currently has more than 250 books that you can borrow. We have more than 70 graded readers for beginner and intermediate Spanish learners, and more than 50 illustrated books for children in Spanish. Most of the readers are in Spanish, but we have them in other languages like French and Mandarin Chinese as well. As we learn more about the language interests of our community we’ll work on adding more books in other languages.

Where? The library is located in the Wheelhouse at our Language South office in downtown Chattanooga. The address is 1216 E Main St. STE 215, Chattanooga TN 37408.

When? You can join now! We intend for the library to open up in the middle of each summer, and then close sometime in the spring before camp starts. This year the library is open now, and will close for camp on May 15, 2020. Members can check out up to two books for up to three weeks at a time. Most weeks we will have office hours when you can come check-out or return books. If you want to come at a different time, just send us an email at and we may be able to arrange it for you.

You can take a look at the Google Calendar below to see when we’re open this week!

How much? You are eligible for a free membership if you’ve attended El Pueblo Spanish Camp or taken a class with Chattanooga School of Language in the past year. For everyone else the cost is just $10 a year, which will help us to maintain and grow the library in the future.
