A library card in Nashville now gets you access to 15,000 free ebooks and other media in Spanish, thanks to the recent launch of the Odilo service by the Nashville Public Library. Odilo can be accessed through a web browser, mobile devices, and on Kindle Fire.
The Spanish-language collection on Odilo includes ebooks, streaming audiobooks, magazines and videos. Patrons can check out up to 10 titles at a time for 7, 14 or 21 days.
“Adding Odilo’s Spanish-language ebooks to our collection furthers Nashville Public Library’s mission to connect our community and inspire reading,” said Library Director Kent Oliver. “We are proud to serve such a diverse city with materials people want and need."
The library cites the fact that "about 9% of the greater Nashville population speaks Spanish at home, according to U.S. Census data collected in 2015."
