Old Bridge, NJ – Jan. 7, 2020 — 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 February 11th and the Wednesday morning classes start February 12th. Both classes generally end in mid-May.
Registration begins for Old Bridge residents on Monday, January 20th and must be done in-person at the Adult and 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. Space permitting, registration will open up to non-residents on Monday, February 3rd. The Library traditionally hosts a special ceremony on the last day of class, to thank the tutors and recognize the students’ efforts with a Certificate of Achievement.
The Old Bridge Public Library has consistently been voted one of the three Best Public Libraries in Middlesex County by the readers of the Home News Tribune. 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.
