As we are rearranging the books in the Central library as part of the Central Library Bond Improvements, we are unearthing many treasures that deserve attention. We have relocated many of our books that are in world languages and much of the 400s.
The library has many items in Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese. Don't see your favorite language? Be sure to try Interlibrary Loan for even more choices!
