Are you interested in practicing and improving your English?

Our ESL (English as a Second Language) program is always accepting new students for one-on-one tutoring. Our tutors are local volunteers, and these sessions are absolutely free to participants. Tutoring sessions are held at the library during the hours that we are open and are open to students aged 18+ who are looking to learn or practice English.

Become a Student

To join the program, please visit the library and ask for an ESL student application at the Check Out desk. Library staff will send your application to Amy Hamilton, the Adult Literacy Coordinator. Amy will contact you to schedule tutoring sessions.
