Language Groups

English Learning for Adults (ESOL Classes)

Know someone who needs help with English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL)? Practice and build your English skills for free every Thursday at 10am with our weekly ESOL class! Adults of all nationalities and skill levels are welcome. Contact Bill Loveland for more information about this class and other learning options currently offered by OCM BOCES and OCPL.

Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Drop in for casual German conversations every Friday at noon. Once per month, the library organizes a German Club meeting, complete with refreshments and a lecture or activity auf Deutsch.

Parlez-vous Français? While the library does not have a program for French speakers, we can put you in contact with a community group that meets here.
