English as a second language

Some of the Alpine Elementary students with staff from Kenowa Hills schools  and the KDL library

It was a busy evening at the Alpine Township Library Wednesday as nearly 30 Alpine Elementary School children and parents visited to learn all about the services offered..  For many, it was the first time they set foot in a library and they were amazed that they could borrow books and music and movies, or use computers at no charge.

The program was sponsored by Alpine Elementary School specifically for student who use English as a second language.  Many families signed up and while the library has a good selection of books in Spanish, most of the books signed out  by the students were in English.  "How many books can I take out at a time?"  one of the students asked.  "As many as your mother lets you." was the reply from the head librarian.
