1. Searching for kids' magazines
From: Peter Fekety <firstname.lastname@example.org:email@example.com>
We are a medium sized public library in suburban
Washington, D.C., looking to subscribe to one or two children’s
magazines in Spanish - we're talking anything that would appeal
to grades 1-6 - we have heard of something called Chispa
that comes out of Mexico, but are unable to find much information
about it - any suggestions? Thanks...

My name is Lisa Regimbal and I am a librarian at
Multnomah County Public Library in Portland, Oregon. Here at Multnomah
County we have had a scattered approach to serving our Spanish-speaking
patrons and we are trying to create a cohesive plan. I am hoping
to get a lot of good ideas from this listserv.

5. Website for Spanish-speaking students
Barbara Miller at Cal State-Fullerton has put together
a terrific Spanish-language guide, El Web en Español, for
Some of the licensed electronic resources here are
only accessible to CSF students, but nonetheless there's a wealth

Just to let you know. I bookmarked the SOL
web page and it shows up as an "untitled document". I
am sure you can fix it.
[Note from a blushing Flaco: This kind of

I didn't like, and I’ve added some to the page. Thanks, Lillian.]
