"One Out of Five People Can't Read This" poster
Adult Literacy Tutor Information Night

Make a difference! Teach someone to read. In the United States there are 30 million adults who can’t read at a functional level and there are currently over 100,000 adults on waitlists to get paired with a literacy tutor at this time.  Find out how you can get involved and share your love of reading with an adult in need at our Adult Literacy Tutor Info Night on Thursday, January 26th at 7pm!   We will go over how tutor training works (15 hours on March 3rd, 10th and 17th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm) and what’s necessary to become a tutor—just 2 hours a week. No formal training in education is required and you don't have to make any commitments right away. Just stop by and find out what adult literacy is all about! If you are unable to attend and are still interested, please give us a call or stop by the Reference desk and ask for Kristy.
