Meet the New World Language Collection and More News from the Library
The library has news about our new World Language collection, the top ten most popular books at WHS, suggestions for reading and information on how to get Boston and Weston public library cards.
New: World Language book collection
Read books in different languages to develop your language skills, cultural understandings and family connections. The books are all by native authors–no translations from English. The books range from picture books to classic literature for adults. We have fiction, nonfiction and poetry. There is something for every language level.
- Read a picture book to your family to develop your speaking skills.
- Read a picture book to yourself to develop your beginning reading skills
- Advanced language speakers: challenge yourself with a novel or classic text
- Share a book with your parents: ask them to read it aloud to the family to develop your listening skills
