Multilingual Lending Library

What?

Our lending library currently has more than 350 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. We also have a collection of French books and some German, Portuguese, and Chinese books.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 at the Chattanooga School of Language in Chattanooga. The address is 4122 N Access Rd, Chattanooga TN 37415.

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 info@languagesouth.com 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! Members can also use the self-check-in/check-out feature outside of the open library hours times such as when they come to Chattanooga School of Language for a class. Please check before coming to check-out or return a book as the Chattanooga School of Language building is not always open.

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.

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.
