Adult Literacy


About the Literacy Center

The Literacy Center offers literacy programs to adults at no charge. Classes are taught by trained volunteers and involve one-to-one or small group instructions for adults looking to improve reading, writing, math and study skills. We also offer help with the citizenship exam and English as a second language (ESL).


Language Learning

Rosetta Stone is available in the literacy computer lab at the Central Library or you can access from home with a library card.

Instructions:  English / Spanish
