Resources in Languages Other Than English (LOTE)

Woollahra Libraries offers books and magazines in a range of languages other than English, reflecting the diverse backgrounds of members of our local community.

Members may request a bulk loan of books in languages other than English at any time through inter-library loans. There is no charge for this service. These items are the property of the State Library of New South Wales as part of its multicultural services and are made available to Woollahra Libraries for a period of 3 months. Members may borrow them for the usual three week loan period.

Requests for particular titles attract the standard inter-library loan charges.

Magazines in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish are part of the magazine collection at Double Bay Library and may be borrowed for 3 weeks with 2 renewals.
