The Eisenhower Public Library District is offering a new program aimed at our patrons whose primary language is one other than English. With support from the American Dream Starts @ Your Library Grant, supported by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation and the American Library Association, the Eisenhower Speaks Your Language program offers materials and events that engage the English learners in our community and support their progress to English language fluency.
Programs to learn English are available on dedicated laptops, CDs and iPods for a wide variety of languages. "Conversation Corners" will be taking place on the first Tuesday of each month throughout the year from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. to offer an opportunity for learners to practice speaking English together in a friendly, non-critical environment. There will also be workshops with immigration specialists who will provide vital information to our patrons on the road to citizenship.
