32 Ideas to Reach Your Spanish-Speaking Patrons.
Mayans, Ernesto
Developed to assist libraries in serving the public, the booklet presents 32 simple, inexpensive projects designed to develop a more permanent communication between the Hispanic American community and the library. Each idea stresses community involvement and feedback, while taking into consideration the needs of the library itself. The objectives, preparation, materials needed, sources, and cost are given for each idea. The ideas cover such topics as the Spanish book of the month, a Hispanic Day celebration, Spanish cuisine, bilingual welcome poster, hospital book mobile, paperbacks in Spanish, Hispanic American women, Hispanic artists, story-telling in Spanish, rare books in Spanish, multicultural displays and drawings, a calendar of Hispanic events, panel discussions, and a survey of reading interests. An English-Spanish glossary of words most frequently used in a library setting is included for immediate reference. Although the booklet was written with the Spanish-speaking community in mind, it can also be used to benefit other minority people living or working in the area. (Author/NQ)
