We are a country of immigrants. Whether your ancestors have been here for generations, or you have only been to the United States of America for a short time the library has classes and reading material for you! Our library offers a selection of fiction and nonfiction books in other languages including Polish and Spanish.
But did you know that your your library can connect you with resources for improved adult literacy and English language learning? We have an Adult Learning collection that features books, and DVDs to help with your reading, language, and writing skills.
English Classes & Tutoring
We also offer an English Conversation Class that meets once a month. We call this class “Crossroads Cafe”, this informal class allows you to enjoy the company of other English language learners and practice your conversation skills. You can find the date of the class in our newsletter or you can view it here.
The Lindenhurst School District also offers English night classes. For more information click here.
