READ bookshelfThe ESL/READ collection at the CCSF Library includes print and digital materials for non-credit and for-credit ESL.

This guide’s main focus is to serve non-credit ESL teachers and learners by providing circulating physical materials which:

  • are, or can be, leveled
  • are high interest/low level English
  • serve the ESL curriculum for informational needs
  • help ESL learners to practice reading and learn basics of English
  • allow them to become more familiar with American culture and customs, both local and national
  • foster emerging readers of all levels of English

The primary language of the collection will be English.
