Quiero un Libro. I Want a Book.
California State Univ., Fullerton. Div. of Library Science.
This vocabulary improvement handbook was designed to be an aid to children's and young adult librarians serving in public and school libraries who know little or no Spanish, but who wish to serve their Spanish-speaking community. Content and design of the handbook emanated from class discussions by participants in the Library Training Institute for Mexican Americans. The common words and simple vocabulary included are those of high-use and are frequently heard in libraries. The book is divided into four English-Spanish sections: (1) simple questions asked by children and young adult patrons with sample answers; (2) questions asked by librarians with answers; (3) short dialogues which are representative examples of conversations heard in libraries, e.g., explanations of card catalogs and library services; and (4) vocabulary word lists. A bibliography is appended. (Author/JPF)
