English as a Second Language

Do you know someone from another country living here in the U.S.?  Does he or she feel the need to improve their knowledge of the English language?  If so, don't waste any time sending them to the library!  We have many experienced tutors here at the Kingwood Branch Library willing to offer free personal assistance in improving an eager learner's use of English.  All that's required is a completed ESL application and an assessment of an applicant's skill level in order to match him or her with an appropriate tutor.  Don't hesitate to encourage someone you know to seize this great opportunity!
