Old Bridge, NJ – Jan. 18, 2018 — The Old Bridge Public Library will once again offer English as a Second Language (ESL) classes on Tuesday evenings from 7-8:30pm, and on Wednesday mornings from 10 – 11:30am. Two sessions are available; the Tuesday evening classes begin Feb. 13th and the Wednesday morning classes start Feb. 14th. Both classes are available to Old Bridge residents only, and generally end in mid-May.
Registration begins Monday, Jan. 22nd and must be done in-person at the Adult & Information Services desk at the Central Branch of the Library. Classes are free to Old Bridge residents and are taught in small groups by trained volunteers. Due to the popularity of the sessions and the limited space, residents are strongly encouraged to register as soon as possible to avoid being shut out. The Library hosts a potluck meal on the last day of class, where all the students (and tutors) are encouraged to bring a dish representative of their country of origin, and eligible students receive a Certificate of Achievement.

The Library is open seven-days-a-week and is located at 1 Old Bridge Plaza at the corner of Rt. 516 and Cottrell Road in the Municipal Center.
