Hello, Bonjour, Bienvenidos, ??????

If English is not your first language then you are like many New Yorkers. Data indicates that more that 40% of Brooklynites alone speak a language other than English at home. It’s no wonder that our own Mayor Bloomberg often delivers his speeches in Spanish, the most popular language (next to English, of course) spoken in the five boroughs.

To keep up with changing times, BPL has also taken a step in the multilingual direction. Be on the lookout for our new state-of-the-art Bibliobus. This new library on wheels will offer Spanish-speaking Brooklynites the chance to borrow books written in their language.

For those of you who don’t speak another language, BPL has something for you, too. There’s no time like the present to broaden your horizons and learn a new language. With the use of your new library card, you can log on to our website and learn an array of languages from the comfort of your home.

For more information about our multilingual services, visit your local library or check us out here.
