The collection includes Greek, Tamil, French, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, and German to name just a few. All reading levels are catered for from the very-basic to super-fluent. The Arthur Holt staff welcome any suggestions as to how this may be expanded to best serve the needs of our school community.
