The Adult Learning Centers (ALCs) are the direct service providers of ESOL and adult literacy instruction for the Library. They use professional teachers to offer free instruction to adult patrons in reading, writing, speaking and listening from a 0 to 8th grade level. Through formal classes in language and literacy, as well as elective offerings such as English conversation and citizenship preparation groups, ALCs have taken on the charge to expand ESOL instruction in the Library.
The Student Mentor works as part of the Intake team that welcomes, orients, assesses and formally registers new students into the program. He/she is responsible for accurate student information collection and data entry. Student Mentors provide basic computer instruction and support for educational activities that are part of the curriculum.
