Literacy Center

The Literacy Center provides a variety of materials for adults who have basic literacy needs to learn to read and write, and for ESOL adults who are just learning English.  The Center has a variety of periodicals, books, CDs and DVDs to help the adult learner.

There are Literacy Assistants scheduled at various times to assist patrons who wish to apply for a library card; borrow books, videos, music, etc.; fill out applications and form or read instructions; to register for programs at MCPL for themselves or their children; provide computer tutoring sessions; help patrons find the right programs for learning; help arrange tutoring.  One Literacy Assistant is Spanish speaking.

We offer a variety of programs each season to meet the needs of our patrons, including ESOL classes, English Conversation Groups, ESOL Writing Skills Workshops, Mujeres Latinas, and others.
