From the Amherst Bulletin (bottom of 'Around Amherst' section):

"The English as Second Language Center at the Jones Library recently received a $1,000 grant to help new immigrants achieve English literacy and proficiency.

Vernon Library Supplies of Norcross, Georgia, awarded the money, which will be used to help the ESL Center in its work to organize programs and services. These include providing volunteers to do one-to-one instruction, organizing conversation groups, and offering assistance for citizenship applications."

Congratulations to Lynne Weintraub and our ESL Program!
