Spanish language services

If you need help in Spanish to access any of Durham County Library’s books, resources, or programs, we’re here for you!

All our activities and items are free for anyone who lives in Durham County.

We offer programs in Spanish and bilingual programs for all ages. We’ve got reading support for children, volunteer opportunities for Hispanic teens, English as a second language classes for adults, and fun programs throughout the year, both at the libraries and out in the community with our community partners.

We offer all kinds of help for people who prefer to use our resources in Spanish. If you need help…

  • getting a library card
  • finding books
  • signing up for library programs
  • with homework
  • with online resources that are in Spanish or are bilingual

…or if you have other needs or questions, just email Monica at mbelford@dconc.gov.

Hispanic Services is part of Durham County Library’s Community Engagement team.

Email: mbelford@dconc.gov

Since 2017, Monica has worked with the library system as the Hispanic Services Coordinator. One of her main goals is to make everyone feel welcome at all of the libraries. Teens volunteering to read with younger kids is one of her preferred programs because when she was much younger, she learned Spanish by volunteering to do the same. After graduating from Wake Forest University, she moved to Salamanca, Spain, where she obtained an M.Ed in immigration and education and completed all of the coursework toward a Ph.D. in Spanish grammar. In her free time, she loves home improvement projects, thrifting, and listening to audiobooks.
