I read a forum where a library user said she wants books that are in Spanish for a certain age group. She wants a display of this in libraries. I agree with her. Recently I was asked how will you assess your community needs if they only spoke Spanish and you don’t know any Spanish. That might be hard to do but libraries can display their Spanish authors.
Give teens a chance to improve the collection by including authors who speak the same language as them.
It is not about getting a book in your language. It is about showing teens that they have choices. They don’t have to miss out because they aren’t any books for them.
