RED BANK, NJ - The Red Bank Public Library in partnership with Literacy Volunteers of Monmouth County will offer free conversational English classes for adults 18 and over this summer from June 16 through August 18, 2011, on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.   The classes are free and registration is not required.

The classes, led by volunteers trained by Literacy Volunteers of Monmouth County, assist those whose native language is not English to learn the language in an informal, stress-free environment in which they can meet and practice speaking with others who are also learning English to help them at work, home, and in the community.   These conversational English classes are suitable for both beginning and intermediate speakers of English.

Additional information on this and other free programs in the Adult and Children’s Departments of the Red Bank Public Library will be available at the library, on the library’s website www.lmxac.org/redbank, or by calling the library at 732-842-0690.   Library hours through June 11 are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Summer hours from June 17 through September 10 will be Fridays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The library is located at 84 West Front Street in Red Bank.
