English Language Learner Programs

The ELL Conversation Group, Reading Group and Advanced ELL Book Club meetings are for adult non-native English speakers who want to practice speaking in a fun, relaxed environment with a Plymouth-Canton Community Literacy Council (CLC) volunteer tutor. Learn more about our English language learner programs in our English Language Learner Programs FAQ.

The library offers numerous ESL resources, including self-instruction books, conversation topics, idiom and slang dictionaries, punctuation and grammar guides, and more. These materials are in the Nonfiction section; look for a guide sign on the top shelf and yellow "ESL" stickers on books, or you can browse ESL materials in the catalog.
