Medien Box: America on a Shelf

Die Leihgabe "America on a Shelf" ist bis Anfang Juni noch bei uns.

Wir freuen uns über den temporären Medienzuwachs im Bereich Amerikanische Literatur.

Der BVÖ und die Botschaft der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika bieten seit 2011 Medienboxen mit Literatur in amerikanischem Englisch zur Entlehnung an.

Die Bücher können wie gewohnt bei uns für drei Wochen und einmaliger Verlängerung ausgeliehen werden. Die Medien sind eine Leihgabe des BVÖ-Büchereiverband Österreichs. Sie stehen bis Juni 2021 zur Verfügung und werden im Anschluss zurückgesandt.
