Languages Other Than English (LOTE)

The Cooperative facilitates the purchase of literacy resources, coordinated by the NSW Literacy Working Group.
By purchasing your library’s LOTE and ESL collections through the Cooperative, libraries can benefit from discounts due to bulk purchasing and shared cataloguing.
