The purpose of this interactive qualifying project was to research the current methods libraries have of facilitating non-native integration into American society. The scope of research included several branches of the Providence Public Library. The field research included library visitations, librarian interviews, multiple observation sessions in English as a Second Language (ESL) classrooms, and several interviews of the people involved in ESL programs. The literature research uncovered the ability and preparedness of libraries to meet the demands of the non-native, as well as the basis for ESL classes and how they can function as a productive part of the library. The project is concluded with a breakdown of the positive and negative fundamental aspects of the systems and suggestions for applying the results.
