Arlington Reads has opened registration for additional summer adult education classes. No matter what your goal or dream is, Arlington Reads is here to help!

Arlington residents currently working towards becoming United States citizens are invited to join us for a nine-week course covering civics and United States history, as well as tips to pass the citizenship test. These classes are free, and you will be provided with everything you need for the class. Citizenship classes begin June 23 and will meet on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Arlington Reads classroom in the Downtown Library. 

The library offers one-on-one and small group classes to help adults improve their reading and writing skills. Adults working towards earning their GED or high school equivalency diploma are encouraged to attend our free test prep classes. These small group classes cover five subjects that appear on high school equivalency tests (like the GED or the HiSET): Math, Social Studies, Science, Writing, Reading. Students will take a test to figure out which subjects they need to focus on. Classes will be held on Wednesday & Friday evenings from 6-9 p.m. at the South Police Service Center in South Arlington at 1030 SW Green Oaks Blvd. 

For those wanting to improve their English, our small group English as a Second Language classes are offered for all skill levels. Students will take a test to determine their language needs. Classes begin July 23 and meet every Monday and Wednesday at our Woodland West branch from 5-8 p.m. through November 5.
