Library users can easily find books and magazines in the Spanish language through any of the Eastern Shore Public Libraries. The regional library in Accomac now has its Spanish language books in one location, both fiction and nonfiction titles. These books can also be delivered to any of the other libraries in Cape Charles, Chincoteague, and Nassawadox via ESPL’s courier service. Freading, one of the library’s online downloadable e-book sources, has 162 Spanish language books available. Zinio, the online magazine source, has eight Spanish magazines available to download including Cosmopolitan and Sport Life. The online books and magazines can be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet, or computer — all for free!
Children will enjoy the Spanish language children’s books, videos, and puzzle games on “Tumblebooks” online. “Day by Day” is a daily calendar of activities for preschool child caregivers that is also available in Spanish. Here you will find ideas for stimulating your child’s mind and imagination using materials found in your home, as well as lists of books, music, and other educational resources that you can obtain through your local public library.
You need to have a library card to check out both the print and online books and magazines. Staff at the library can assist you in getting your library card and setting up online accounts. These resources and more are available at no cost with your Eastern Shore Public Library card. There is also a bilingual Notary on staff in Accomac. Your local public libraries also have computers, photocopiers, scanners, and fax machines for public use for which a small fee may apply. Stop by the library to find out more or call (757) 787-3400.No comments
