Were you unable to finish or go to school? Would you like to officially complete your basic primary and/or secondary education? Now you can and it’s free! The adult literacy program at the Bellevue Library allows you to complete your official primary and secondary SEP (Secretary of Public Education) diploma, starting any time and studying at your own pace.

The Plaza Comunitaria at the Bellevue Library is an educational center created through a collaboration between the Consulate of Mexico in Seattle and the King County Library System. The program offers a curriculum in Spanish, designed specifically for teaching adults of any nationality and allows you to study individually, starting at your level.

The curriculum, materials, and tutorials are completely free. To begin, register at the Bellevue Library by completing a placement test that will determine which curriculum to follow. Open hours are Mondays and Saturdays between 10 am to 1 pm and Wednesdays 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. This is an ongoing program. There are no classes during Holidays and in December. Students are welcome to come to the tutorials any day, it is not required to come all three days.

By completing the library program and receiving your primary or secondary diploma officially recognized by the SEP (Secretary of Public Education) and the INEA (National Institute for Adult Education) government of Mexico, you will:

  • Lay the foundation for HS21+ or GED, learn or improve your English, be able to help your children with their homework.
  •  Have a group of volunteer teachers who will help you with computer skills, other library resources and support you in achieving your educational goals and dreams.

It's never too late to start. Come to the Bellevue Library to study, and sign up today!
