Our team partnered with a school librarian, from a K-12 public school district that has a significant percentage of Spanish-speaking students, to find titles in Spanish that could be added to the already existing collection. The team used our Spanish-speaking skills to search for titles spanning kindergarten through young adult reading levels. We vetted our selections with book reviews and recommended the resulting 200 titles for purchase. Some of the suggested titles have already been reviewed by the school librarian for potential selection. We hope every student can see their language and/or culture represented on their library’s shelves.
