English as a Library Language

More than 25 million people living in the United States have limited proficiency in English, and they’re disproportionately more likely to be living in poverty as a result. English language learners make up nearly 10 percent of all public school students in America. That makes supporting English Language Learning a top priority for school, public, and academic libraries alike. While patrons turn to libraries for help learning all kinds of languages, the need for English is apt to be more pressing and affect far more people than any other.

Join this webcast to learn how innovative libraries of all sizes are meeting their patrons’ need for not only formal instruction and self-directed learning tools, but underserved niches that make an immediate, practical difference.
