The first of five courses begins Wednesday and the entire program continues until July 7. Instructors are be able to assist limited English-speaking individuals, but the program is geared to speakers of other languages who are functioning at a higher level of reading, writing and comprehension.

Each week, the library hosts two sessions of each class on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 5-7 p.m.  Computers will be supplied by the library. Classes are made possible through a partnership with Northern Essex Community College and with money from the federal American Rescue Plan Act.
