(NAPA, Calif--) The Napa County Library is celebrating its
30th anniversary of adult literacy programs, which has helped thousands of
local residents improve their reading and writing skills. Come share the
rewards of helping an adult learner to read and write.
Volunteer tutors help other community members build their
basic skills for work and life. Volunteer tutors work once or twice a week to
help an adult learner reach important goals. Adults come to the Literacy Center
for many reasons, including preparing for job promotion, working towards a
General Equivalency Diploma (GED), becoming a citizen, or learning to read a
book to their child.
Prior experience is not required; the Literacy Center will
train you to work with an adult learner. The training is free and qualifies
volunteers to tutor in the program. Here is a chance to share the gift of
literacy with adults seeking to improve their lives.
If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please
attend an orientation session to learn about the program. Two orientation sessions will be offered in
the month of May. One session will be offered at the Calistoga Library, located
at 1108 Myrtle Street in Calistoga, on May 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and
the second session will be offered at the Yountville Library, located at 6516
Washington Street in Yountville, on May 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
