Volunteer Tutors

Volunteer Tutors meet regularly with adult learners to help learners meet their personal reading and writing goals. Learner goals may include reading to grandchildren, completing a written driver license exam, writing a resume, learning to use e-mail, passing the GED, or obtaining citizenship. Tutor/Learner pairs are encouraged to meet regularly at their local library to take advantage of library space, computers, materials and resources.
