Browsing the Collection

You can find our ESL collection on the lower shelves near the far end of the library helpdesk.  Please ask if you need help finding this area, or a particular title, and we will be happy to help!

Or you can search our library catalogue.

As well as books about learning English, we also have a range of short novels by well-known authors. These are written specifically for ESL students.


The library does not buy textbooks. However, sometimes your teacher will place their own textbooks in the library as part of our Reserve collection. These books are for use in the library only, for up to four hours at a time.
