Consider this! Literacy Tutor Training at ALD

Would you like to make a difference in the life of adult? Consider becoming a literacy tutor! Aldine Branch Library will host a training session on September 14, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for volunteers interested in helping adults learn to read and write. The training workshop is free and there are no requirements to volunteer, other than an interest in reading and two or three hours per week to help someone learn this important skill. Tutors help adults gain the basic reading and writing skills necessary every day to meet such goals as advancing at work, reading to their children, and reading for personal interest.  The library provides materials with detailed lessons.Tutoring can take place at any library or another location in the community, such as a church or community center.

For more information, to register for this workshop, or if you know of an adult who would like to improve his or her reading, please call the library at 281-484-2036.
