Spanish & Bilingual Books in the NCS Library

Did you know that we have a large collection of books in Spanish in our Library? We also have many that are bilingual, too. Most of these books are on the Spanish shelf near the picture books. Some are shelved by author in the picture book section - you will find a red and yellow label on these that say "Spanish" so they are easier to find! You may also search "Hispanic Heritage" in the library catalog to find many books, too. (Ms. Holley has added a tag to those books so they may be more easily located.)
