News & Notes 748:A note from the Auroville Library to the Dutch, Spanish, and Korean community
A note from the Auroville Library to the Dutch, Spanish, and Korean community
With the opening of the new wing at the Auroville Library more space has now become available in the main reading hall. Following a proposal from some readers we took the opportunity to make the Dutch and Spanish sections more attractive, by expanding their shelf space. Of the eight languages, so far, seven were of European origin, with Tamil being the only Asiatic language in our collection. A generous book donation allowed us to – exceptionally – open a Korean section for this rapidly expanding part of our community.
However, as shelf space is limited the continuation of this experimental arrangement depends on how actively readers will be making use of the books. Please come forward and fill this space with life: help keeping the selection attractive through your book donations and suggestions, by telling your friends about the Dutch / Spanish / Korean section of the library, and of course by lending books.
