About Library Resources

The Helen Hall Library has some good resources for learning English, and not all of these are in print book format.  We also offer access to audio book/language kits, e-books, DVDs and databases that all help focus on a variety of English-learning skills.  Different levels are also included, from beginner to advanced.  For free English Conversation classes, join us at the library on Monday nights at 6:30 and on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 in the library board room.  All levels are welcome!
