A cry for help from France

Judit Kiraly tschann@webstore.fr wrote in from France awhile ago with this request, I thought I would repost it for her.

\" I have \"inherited\" in December the presidency of the English-American Library of Nice. The problem is that what I know
about libraries is rather limited to my own experience of various establishments where I did my doctoral research.
It is a small, 20 000 volume English library in the south of France. I intend to do my best, but we are all voluntary and I am
the one who does most of the organising/running of it with the help of some very nice but totally unqualified voluntary
librarians. The place is reasionably organised and indexed, but when it comes to improving it - I definitely need professional
advice.--Read more for her questions. -- Read More

Meeting the Information Literacy Needs of Spanish Speakers

Dawn Smith writes \"I was curious to see what sort of technology services are offered to multicultural patrons - specifically Hispanic & Spanish speaking patrons - at libraries around the country. It seems to me that there is a huge gap in these services. The New York public library offers one computer class in Spanish (for all of the branches too, not just the main library)! I am doing some research on this, I would be really interested in comments, or even a story. Thanks!
