If you want to learn a foreign language, the Arts, Languages and Literature section in Birmingham Central Library can help. We stock language books and tapes, on 57 different languages from around the world.
The attachment below is an example of the material we have available for viewing within the Library. We provide all the necessary equipment free of charge. Please check the Library Catalogue to see if we have the item you want, and visit us the next time you are in the city centre.
Language courses for loan on cassette/CD are available in the Learning Centre, 1st Floor, Central Library or from a learning centre or one of the community libraries spread throughout the city.
