New! Saturday ESL class at Avon Public Library


The demand for English as a Second Language (ESL) classes and one-on-one adult tutoring programs provided by The Literacy Project is at an all-time high.  In November, The Literacy Project will add a Saturday morning class for ESL learners at the Avon Public Library. The Saturday class will be offered in addition to our four ESL classes already in place throughout Eagle County.

“Adding a Saturday class in Avon will provide expanded access to literacy services for under-served communities and working families,” said Colleen Gray, Executive Director of The Literacy Project.

The Literacy Project’s ESL classes are held at the Avon, Eagle and Gypsum Public Libraries. “Our partnership with the libraries of the Eagle Valley Library District is ideal,” said Gray. “Every class meeting provides the opportunity to connect our literacy students with the valuable resources available through our public libraries.”

In addition to weekly ESL classes throughout the county, The Literacy Project also offers free, confidential one-to-one tutoring. Over 200 adult students are currently served by the organization, whether through ESL learning programs, or native English speakers wishing to improve their reading and writing skills.

The Literacy Project currently serves over 800 students of all ages through their six key literacy programs. To learn more about programs for younger learners, visit our website:
