Chinese version of books in Irish Libraries

Chinese version of most popular books in Irish libraries, books such as W.B. Yeats. Other languages are catered for as well, Polish, Spanish, Romanian, Czech, Japanese etc.

Most of the books are selected from bestseller lists in the immigrants' countries, but the libraries also have copies of popular Irish works in translation.

Most of the foreign-language books are kept in the Central Library in Dublin's Ilac Centre, close to the city-centre homes of many immigrants.
Libraries in Counties Waterford, Donegal and Meath have expressed an interest in joining the book rental scheme to cater for their immigrant populations.
