|The Elizabeth Public Library Earns 2016 Literacy Grant
What can $2500 do for our Literacy/ESL collection? One thing: provide ‘easy reading’ kits for those new to English, with abridged literature classics packaged with a CD to enhance learning.
Elizabeth Public Library was awarded the New Jersey State Library’s 2016 Collection Development Literacy Grant in the amount of $2500. The materials acquired with the grant funds will be housed on the 3rd floor of the Library, in the newly created ESL EXPRESS corner, where language and citizenship tutors and classes are held. The new materials will also include GED prep tools for ESL learners, and resources on social customs, language idioms, and other cultural preparation aids for immigrants.
