Statement of Support: ESL Students

We are students at the Jones Library ESL Center. We come to the library frequently to practice English and attend events. Many of us meet with one-to-one tutors here. We enjoy reading materials here, we study here, we meet friends here, and we bring our children to explore the resources here. Although it is crowded at times, we love the library and we think it helps to make Amherst a good place to live.

We are happy to learn that there are plans to expand the library building and make it easier to use. This will make the experience better for the newcomers who arrive in Amherst in future years.
