Do you Speak Greek, or Know Someone who Does?

Sutherland Shire Libraries are introducing a collection of Greek language books. We have for some time had books, magazines and DVD’s in Arabic and Chinese languages available for loan and we are expanding this service with a small collection of Greek language books.

Please pass this news on to your friends and relatives.

This is a trial collection has been introduced in response to a large number of Greek Bulk Loans requested during the previous year. Bulk Loans are boxes of books in a specific language borrowed for 3 months from another library service, usually the State Library of NSW. The books are then available for any of our customers to borrow. Anyone can request a Bulk Loan. If there are books available in your chosen language we will get them in and let you know when they are here.

The new Greek collection includes novels such as Gynaika me triantaphyllo by Helene Sarantite, Phader Hēmōn by Manos Vourakēs and Ta megala koritsia den klaine by Mpesse Livanou.

Some of the subjects covered by the non-fiction collection are health, cookery, world politics, history and biography. At Sutherland Library, Community Language material is shelved behind the Enquiry desk on the ground floor. If you can’t find them please ask. Branch Libraries also have small collections.
