EBPL Expands World Language Collections

EBPL Expands World Language Collections

Posted May 26, 2015

The East Brunswick Public Library has expanded its world language collections to reflect our growing community.

“We have expanded our collections to better reflect East Brunswick,” said Jill D’Amico, Adult Services Librarian. “The Library is a community resource, and we strive to offer materials that are inclusive and reflective of this community.”

The Library recently begun to order Urdu books, and plans to add more throughout the year. Urdu is widely spoken in Pakistan and India, and is cited as among the top 10 languages spoken at home among East Brunswick public schoolchildren. Recently added Urdu books include popular fiction and cookbooks.

Also recently updated was the Hebrew collection. With grassroots support from the local Hebrew-speaking community, this collection has expanded to include recent popular fiction and history books from Israel.

Thanks to generous donations, our Chinese language collection also expanded. These books are ordered on a continual basis so that our patrons can enjoy the newest books as they are published.

The East Brunswick Public Library offers materials in Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Korean, Hebrew, Gujarati, Hindi, and Arabic. Residents who have suggestions or questions regarding the world language collections are encouraged to contact Jill D’Amico at
