ESL - English as a Second Language

Use this guide to find useful resources for English language learning.

Finding ESL Readers

You can reserve a set of ESL Readers by level for contactless pick up at the Bailey Library. Each set includes 10 books and will be a mix of fiction and non-fiction. 

Email Notifications: 

  • If there are available items you will receive an email to your WCC email account notifying you to pick up your item(s)
  • If there are no items available you will receive an email to your WCC email account notifying you that the hold was canceled
  • Items not picked up within 14 days of the pick up notification email will be returned to the collection and made available to another student

How do I return books?

You can return books as a set or one at a time. Each book in the set is checked out to you- so you don't have to return them all at once if you are still reading.
