The Information and Reference Services Department offers a variety of programs, classes and materials. The outreach program serves two local retirement communities and the home bound. The literacy program offers English as a Second Language (ESL) for adults with skilled tutors and convenient class meeting times. We are currently seeking volunteer instructors for our ESL program. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the Adult Services Department. We also offer Tech-on-the-go Classes . If there is a technology topic or device you would like help with, ask at the Information and Reference Services Desk.
