Foreign Language Books
updated: Jan 15, 2014, 9:05 AM

By Edhat Subscriber

Awhile back an Edhater offered a couple of Polish language books. I gave them to a friend who was going visit his Polish grandparents back east. They were thrilled. My friend is planning another visit. Does anyone know where I could find Polish language books or magazines locally?

People still buy books locally? If it's that specific you will most likely have to order online. I'd call Chaucers, Granda Books and Book Den but doubt they would have much of a supply.

Call UCSB Bookstore, they might have used textbooks for Polish language classes

If you can't find anything locally....there are plenty of Polish language books and magazines online. Print out some hardcopies for your friend to mail or hand-carry.

Check Goleta Valley library book sale area in the lobby. They have a foreign language section - all kinds of treasures there.

Chaucer's is probably your only sure bet - they can order almost anything you need (except a good gentle soaking rainy day). Otherwise, if you enjoy such things you can wend your way through all the nice oddball used book shops in town and you'll probably come up with a few odds and ends.

In a previous era, you could order Polish (and many other foreign and out of town) newspapers by calling 1-800-LATIMES. They would figure out how to get the goods (usually within a few days to a week) bag it up, and deliver it with your normal morning paper (at least in most of So Cal) and add the cost to your monthly bill (usually only a few dollars - great service to use a week or so before foreign travel).

The Friends of the Carpinteria Library building, to the right of the Library itself, sells used books to raise money for their library branch. There has been a some book shelves with a good selection of foreign language books in the past when I have been in there. Call them and ask if they have any in at this time.

And since your computer is "local" I see a LOT of Polish books available via mail.

Try a simple Google search.
