The Literacy Department loves our diverse mix of students and staff! We serve patrons from all over the world. The students are dedicated and work hard to achieve their goals- to learn English, improve their life, provide for their family, be a good neighbor, and thrive in their new community. Although their languages may differ, the ideas of teamwork, compassion, courage, respect, and more are universal!
