The Adult Literacy Department at the Plainfield Public Library offers a variety of program for the Adult Learner including Free GED and Pre-GED Test Preparation, ESL training, and U.S. Citizenship Test Preparation. For more information about any of our programs,

Los Amigos Club is a group of adults who meet weekly for 2 ½ hours to practice English and improve their communication skills. The Club has over 30 members and is organized by Stella Segura, the ESL Services Coordinator at the Plainfield Public Library. Peter Jacobs and other tutors also take part by coordinating the Club’s activities.
Typically, one will find 10 to 20 members at any given meeting. Its members and guests are native to more than 10 different countries and speak at least 5 different languages. However, it is their desire to improve their English that brings them together.
Students meet to share their talents and learning experience, all while making new friends and having fun.
The roundtable is geared to encourage students to continue in the program and also listen to any suggestions
they may have to improve the programs. It is held four times during the year. Everyone is welcome!
The Adult Literacy Program regularly holds Student Events.
