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

How Do I Become a Volunteer Tutor?
Volunteer tutors are crucial to our students’ success, and are the backbone of our program. Work with adults one-on-one or in groups instructing reading, writing, citizenship preparation and conversation skills. To apply, please fill out an online volunteer application form or visit this page to print off a paper form and return it to the Literacy Center at the Central library.
For the Community
Representatives of The Literacy Center are happy to conduct presentations for your group on the problem of illiteracy in our community. We can provide statistics and facts about illiteracy and its impact on our world plus provide more information on our services.
