Language and literacy resources

The library has a small collection of literacy material suitable for adults developing literacy skills and those learning English as a second language.  The collection includes graded English texts and tape and book kits. We also have some books, CD's and DVD's on learning English in the general collection. 

We have a collection of books and audio material in the non-fiction section of the library for learning languages other than English.

Books , DVDs and music CDs are available in the major community languages of Croatian, Greek, Italian, Macedonian and Serbian with smaller collections in French, German, Polish and Spanish. Newspapers and magazines are also available in community languages. Books in other community languages can be obtained from the State Library on request. The library has a staff member who speaks a number of community languages and can provide assistance to people seeking information about Library services.


For migrants and refugees further help is available from the Multilingual Centre.
