AMHERST, MA(wfcr) -
The Jones Library in Amherst, Massachusetts is able to continue its English as a Second Language program this summer, thanks to an anonymous donation of more than $4,000. Cuts in Amherst's budget caused the town's library system to cut some programs and hours of operation. Before the donation, the Jones ESL program was budgeted to run from only September 2007 to May 2008. Beth Girshman, Adult Services librarian at the Jones library, says people need ESL services year round.
