WORLD LANGUAGES

We are proud to serve our multilingual communities with materials in various languages other than English. The World Languages collection represents the diverse demographics of the Fraser Valley. It is designed to meet the needs of native speakers of a variety of European, Asian and Middle Eastern languages.

The collection is shared between our 25 libraries and is made up of 42,000 items including adult and children's fiction and non-fiction print material, as well as DVDs and CDs. These materials are listed in the online catalogue and are kept current by an annual infusion of new titles.
