Grant brings Spanish resources to Murfreesboro's Linebaugh Library

The Tennessean reports that a Library Services and Technology Act grant has filled the shelves of Murfreesboro's Linebaugh Library with Spanish-language materials. The materials include books like "Spanish translations of novels, encyclopedias, General Educational Development workbooks and manuals for getting a driver's license," as well as "international keyboards for computers, Spanish computer software, [and] English courses on DVD and CD." The grant also allowed the library to hire a Spanish-language translator.

"[Rosa] Senior, the staff member hired through the grant, helped create a brochure in Spanish to let the Hispanic community know of the resources available to them. She also leads a Spanish story-time session every Thursday at 6 p.m. for local children. Adults also can attend a computer class taught in Spanish at 6 p.m. March 15 at the library."
