Read library website in twenty different languages

Thanks to Google, much of this website may now be read in a variety of different languages. On the home page and some other pages, select your desired language from the list of icons representing flags of countries (and Arabic). See image above. Once a page has been translated follow the links on that page, and subsequent pages will also be translated in the selected language. Languages included are Arabic, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.

This service will also work on the Online Forums and the Library Blog, and is an aid to using the online library catalogue (OPAC). Just follow the links from the home page in the desired language. Please note that it may take a few minutes to translate some pages - and it is 'automatic translation'.
