We have a really excellent collection. I've been told that we have the best Spanish language collection of any library in the state. But that was a couple of years ago and some have probably caught up with us.
It's not that the kids listening don't speak English; it's an expression of the diversity we have in Marshalltown. It's healthy for them to see that model from adults. And kids really get a kick out of language anyway. During the elementary years, that's when they're playing with language and learning the power it has.
