Multilingual Lending Library
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 also 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.
The library is located in our Language South office at the Wheelhouse in downtown Chattanooga. The address is 1216 E Main St. STE 215, Chattanooga TN 37408.
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, 2019. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
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.
How do I sign up?
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.
Spanish Immersion Escape Room
We run our Spanish language escape room completely in español. Participants enjoy the fun of an escape room with the bonus of putting their Spanish skills to the test!
We created this experience with learners like you in mind. Whether you’re just starting on your journey with Spanish or you’re a native speaker, we think you will love this experience! Adults and young people are welcome to participate. We recommend that elementary schoolers come with a parent, guardian, or older sibling who will support them in the game! The room has a capacity for 6 participants at a time.
The Spanish language escape room takes place in our Language South office at the Wheelhouse in downtown Chattanooga (1216 E Main St. STE 215, Chattanooga TN 37408).
Click here to see current dates and availability! We will keep that page updated as we add more dates. If you want to reserve the escape room for a private group, please send Paige an email at email@example.com.
The cost is $20 per participant. Get in contact with Paige Moffett for private reservation costs and discounts.
