Newcomer Bookworms: ESL, Story Time & Book Book Club
Posted 07/30/2020

The Nacogdoches Public Library recently received a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to purchase books to strengthen family literacy and encourage summer reading.

The Nacogdoches Public Library is forming a Newcomer Bookworms: ESL Story Time & Book Book Club that will meet each Wednesday at 6:00 pm in front of the library.

The first session will be August 5th. Each session will include story time, reading aloud practice for children and adults, and tips for developing early literacy skills.

“Before the pandemic, the library had a robust group of adults who were preparing for their citizenship exam. Several adults asked for more opportunities to practice their English-speaking skills. They also expressed a desire to to help their children with their reading and pronunciation. The idea for a family book club for English-as- a-second language-learners was formed.” said Mercedes Franks, library director.

Book club books will be available at the library. Participants may also order books and DVDs from the library’s collection for curbside pick-up. Ordering may be done online at www.ci.nacogdoches.tx.us/library or by calling staff at (936) 559-2970.

The book club is free, but registration is requested.
