English Language & Literacy Intensive (ELLI)

ELLI, the English Language & Literacy Intensive, was created in 2000 so that libraries could formally help schools improve the literacy skills and test scores of California schoolchildren who struggle to learn English.

ELLI programs seek to supplement – rather than duplicate – the work of the schools. This is not a curricular approach; instead these programs incorporate educational games, field-trips, guest speakers, story-time, after-school homework help, arts and crafts, music and other activities which gently immerse children in English.
