World Language Services

World Language Collection
MCDL offers World Language Collections at the Brunswick, Highland, and Medina locations. We offer materials in many languages such as Russian, Hindi, and Spanish and in many formats including books, magazines, children's items, CD's and DVD's. The collections are rotated quarterly so patrons may check back often for new material types and languages.

Requests for items in varying languages may be made at your nearest Reference Department or online via the World Language Material Request form. Please return items to the library you from which you borrowed them.

Made possible through a partnership with Cleveland Public Library.
