Foreign Language Collections

by Library Staff | February 16, 2018 at 04:02 PM

For readers looking for books in their native language or people who want to practice reading a new language, Acton Memorial Library offers small collections of books in Chinese, French, Spanish, Russian, Korean, Portuguese, Gujarati, Hindi, and Tamil. To find non-English materials in the catalog, visit, click on "Advanced Search," type a search term, or an asterisk ( * ) to search for everything, and select a language from the Language drop-down box. On the search results screen, click the "Request it" button to reserve an item owned by the Acton Memorial Library or to request a title be sent from another library.

Foreign language readers may also choose to brush up on their language skills by using one of the library's language learning programs: Mango Languages, or Pronunciator.  Both are available through a web browser or a mobile app, and can be accessed through the library's E-Resources page.
