Howard County Library is pleased to highlight the ESL (English as a Second Language) Collection. Developed to provide educational resources for the needs of our foreign-born residents, the collection includes books and materials in audio and video format, so that students of ESL will have a variety of ways to reinforce their English learning experience. The primary customers are foreign born students who are learning the English language, however, this collection is also intended for Project Literacy students to acquire proficient English skills for work and citizenship.
Materials are labeled with yellow ESL stickers. All materials in this collection can be searched by using the term “esl collection” through the Howard County Library online catalog www.hclibrary.org. This collection is generally shelved in the adult Non-fiction area, but the location may vary at some branches.
