Friends of the Aiken Public Library

Foreign Language Program

Our native language is English but the library should have some materials in other languages as well.

The library does not currently have the budget to obtain very many foreign language resources. Over the years, the library has collected a few Spanish language titles, but has nothing in other languages except for a few audiotape learning titles.

There are, however, a great many resources on the internet that can provide material in languages other than English. The Friends of the Aiken Public Library have a program to make foreign language materials available to library patrons. If you are looking to read something in a foreign language, please visit some of the following links. Each link shown below will take you to the book in its original language.
