English as a Second Language
The Library discontinued its English as a Second Language (ESL) program in the fall of 2021, after seven years of matching English learners to volunteer tutors. We will continue to support the ESL tutors and students that we already have in place, but we are not accepting any new students or tutoring volunteers.
The Mahwah school district provides ESL programs for both students and adults. Adults who are interested in receiving ESL instruction should contact the schools directly at 201.762.2320 for more information.
Regional ESL programs are provided by the Literacy Volunteers of Pascack Valley. Adults who are interested in either receiving instruction or receiving training to become a tutor should contact the Literacy Volunteers of Pascack Valley directly.
Many BCCLS libraries provide ESL instruction and may have space available. Please contact these libraries directly for more information.
