The library now has a free English as a Second Language class.

Hank Halle teaches the class 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday at the library. It's for native Spanish-speaking adult students who would like to improve their communication skills in English.

Call 682-4432, send an email to jrmccarthy@okaloosa.lib.fl.us or drop by the library at 1445 Commerce Drive to sign up, as seats are limited.

We also offer a variety of online programs to help those seeking to learn English (and other languages).

We have Rocket Languages, BrainFuse HelpNow and Basic ESL, thanks to our membership with the Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative.

Visit readokaloosa.org and with your library card choose the resource that best suits you.

Marie Heath is the Crestview Public Library's director.
