International Center Collection
The Kresge Foundation International Center
provides fiction and nonfiction titles (including best sellers, popular materials and current general works) in languages other than English which cover a variety of subjects. Special emphasis is placed on providing materials in languages spoken by the larger communities in San Francisco - Spanish, Chinese, Russian and Vietnamese - as well as on more than three dozen other languages with significant demand which reflect local skills and interests. The collection serves the recreational and basic information needs of native speakers, the general public and those learning English and other languages. The collection is weeded
based on use.
