The Literacy Connection needs more tutors. Unfortunately, almost 150 adults remain on the waiting list to share their goals with someone who can tutor them.
Can you give one to two hours per week to help someone achieve their goals in 2014? Consider becoming an adult volunteer literacy tutor. You will change your life and someone else's life. Imagine if you or a loved one struggled with literacy or communicating in English. Wouldn't it be great news to know that there are tutors out there who can and want to help?
"Introduction to The Literacy Connection & Tutor Training" takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3; Thursday, Sept. 4; Monday, Sept. 8; and Thursday Sept. 11, at Gail Borden Public Library, 270 N. Grove Ave., Elgin.
Note on Sept. 3, the first hour will be an introduction to The Literacy Connection and the last two hours is the training session. It is $25 for the book and materials.
