Literacy

It's Never Too Late to Learn to Read and Write!
Free, confidential, one-on-one tutoring for adults.
Established in 1986, the Livermore Public Library's Literacy Program pairs adults who want to improve their basic reading and writing skills with trained volunteer tutors. The results can be positively life-changing for both the adult learner and the tutor. Since its inception, over 4,000 adults have been served by the program.
Adult Learners English-speaking adults who want to improve their basic reading and writing skills.
*Instruction is based on each individual learner's pace, level and goals. Examples of some common goals include being able to read to a child, pass the driver's license test, write a letter, fill out a form in a doctor's office or get a better job.
*Meet Greg, an adult learner in a library literacy program who shares his story.
Tutors Adult volunteers who are trained by Literacy staff. 
*No previous experience necessary. Key qualities include being friendly and respectful. Please see volunteer tutor job description for more details.
 *Tutor Trainings are scheduled throughout the year.
