For library users wishing to read books in their own language, or people wanting to learn another language, we can get books in more than 100 languages from the State Library of NSW. Normally 30 or 40 books come in each delivery, and users can specify authors, titles, or subjects, and also levels.
Adult, children or picture books for very young readers can be requested. It's a great way to keep in touch with your own culture and to pass it along to others.

Lots of new titles have been added to the library shelves this month!
Among the new books are The Pick-up by Australian author Fiona Harris and Mike McLeish. Three adults meet over the school pick-up and decide to volunteer for duties at the school camp. The book is described as "hilariously relevant, disturbingly relatable".
Nicholas Sparks, who has been described as the male Nora Roberts, has written The Wish, "a heart-wrenching story about discovery and loss ... a reminder that time with those precious to us is the greatest gift of all".
Set in Paris, Louise Candlish has written The Day you Saved my Life "... a spellbinding story of passion, heartbreak and destiny ..."
Closer to home is Great Australian Mysteries: Spine Tingling Tales of Disappearances, Secrets, Unsolved Crimes and Lost Treasure.
And very young readers will enjoy a lift the flap book The Very Hungry Caterpillar's Australian Feast!
