Beginning in 2009, the Little Elm Adult Literacy Program was launched and the English as a Second Language (ESL) classes began. Building their effectiveness for adults coming to our area the program has greatly expanded, with the guidance of Dianna Russell being one of the ever present volunteers. Over the years, instructors were found and funds raised. The instructors and funds propelled their program, bought their supplies, and kept them moving forward. There are students from around the world and 25 countries, who come to the classes to learn English in a semi-formal atmosphere, using worksheets and books from an established program. These graduates, guests and speakers from the area enjoyed the evening, which had students from the church serving the tables. This is one of the programs under the guidance of the Friends of the Library supporters. Lynette Roberson, Little Elm Library Manager, did the welcoming speech.
