Adult Literacy Services

Would you like to read or write better, or speak English more fluently? Do you know someone who would like to improve in these areas? The Library can help!

The Woodbury Public Library is committed to helping adults through free Adult Literacy Services, which consists of one-on-one tutoring or small group classes, led by an instructor.

Adult Education and GED

Adult learners are matched with individual tutors who work with them at any level to improve reading and writing skills. Learners can also get help with specific needs, such as filling out workplace forms or studying for the driver’s license exam.

GED learners get prepared for their exams by meeting in small study circles or with an individual tutor, covering Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Mathematical concepts. Other topics of study include: forming good study habits, note-taking skills, and test-taking strategies.

English Language Learners

Adult learners who want to improve their English Language skills have two options: 1) join an Everyday English class or 2) work with an individual tutor. Learners are encouraged to participate in both.

In our Everyday English classes, adult learners can practice their English communication skills through guided conversation groups. Our tutors and instructors help learners with pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and understanding American idioms.

Citizenship and Naturalization

The Library’s Citizenship classes teach adult learners the basic knowledge needed to pass the U.S. Naturalization exam. Topics include: American history, branches of government, courts and legal system, and famous Americans. These classes focus on speaking, reading, and writing skills, and how to conduct oneself at the actual interview.
