Adult Literacy / ESL Resources

Bundaberg Regional Libraries has several resources to help adults learning to read, and to help people learning English as a second language (ESL):

  • ESL graded reading schemes (by SoundEnglish) - on topics of interest to adults
  • TELLS (TAFE QLD English Language and Literacy Services) - beginner level resources for learning English grammar and vocabulary
  • IELTS (International English Language Testing System) - resources to help with written and spoken English

State Library of Queensland LOTE

These foreign language books (Languages Other Than English) are on loan to the Library from the State Library of Queensland. The collections are swapped as the need arises. These items are mostly adult-level, but some junior material is also available.

If we do not currently stock a language of interest to you, please enquire at the front desk. We only order languages which are specifically requested, and there is a short form for you to fill out to let us know your reading interests.
