English Language Learners

All SPL locations have materials for adults who are learning English and materials for the people who tutor or teach adults. Library staff can help adult learners find materials and services to help meet their learning needs.


Tour the Library

Tours and introductions to the library can be booked at any location. Contact us by phone or email to set up a tour. 

If your tour group would like to register for library cards please let us know when you make your booking. We can help you make arrangements for the identification needed to register for a library card.

Literacy Collection 

Each SPL location has a literacy collection with test kits, work books and audio books to help you develop English language skills. Many locations also feature Multilingual books for children and adults, so that you can enjoy reading in your own language. Languages vary by library location.
