Literacy Unlimited logoOur Literacy Program provides materials and free classes for adults learning English or basic literacy skills. We also provide support services for volunteer tutors and trainers.

English Conversation Classes

Learn speaking, listening, reading, and writing at our Learn English Conversation Group sessions. Our class sizes are small. Sessions are free, and no registration is required.

Classes are held on the first or second floor of the library. Please ask for the location at the Circulation Desk.

Become a Tutor

Volunteer tutors must speak, read, and write English clearly and correctly and have a high school diploma or equivalent. You do not need to speak another language to help someone learn English.

Tutoring can be done on your schedule at local libraries (Framingham, Natick, Wellesley, or Marlborough).
