I am a 50+ yr old female, who has finished a degree in Spanish (bilingual for over 35 years). I work at the military library in Fort Leavenworth and part time at the Olathe Public Library. My goal is to complete a professional degree in Library Science. (I want to be a bilingual librarian when I grow up!)Libraries play an important role in community building. I have heard about your effort through REFORMA, the national association organization of librarians and support staff, who are dedicated in promoting Library information and services to Latinos and the Spanish speaking.
I am still exploring the site in Spanish. I teach librarians Spanish for library use. Your site is a resource I have shared with other librarians working with Latin American and Spanish speaking patrons.
