new book

Hi -- Just wanted to let you know about a new book. This information came from an email the author sent out. Maybe everyone from the SLO workshops received it?? The author is Branch Manager in the Las Vegas - Clark county Library District in Nevada. -- Sue

Crash Course in Serving Spanish-Speakers, by Salvador Avila.
Libraries Unlimited, November 2008.

The book represents another step in the evolution of rendering library services to Spanish-speakers which highlights best practices, relevant and responsive services and programs, and reframes our approaches to this segment of the population. Providing services to Spanish speakers is both an honor and a challenge. Before public institutions venture into reaching out to the Spanish speaking community, they need to become familiar with their cultural competency so that their decisions and initiatives are not at risk.
