WRITE TO READ ADULT LITERACY PROGRAM
Write to Read Adult Literacy Program
The Alameda County library’s innovative Adult Literacy Program, Write to Read, provides educational opportunities to adults who want to improve their literacy skills. By creating a supportive and vibrant learning community, we provide a safe environment for reading and writing practice where individuals take risks and grow toward leadership to make positive changes in their lives and communities. Students build strong literacy skills for work, family and lifelong learning.
Free tutoring and small group instruction are offered at most of our branch libraries and in community locations. Students in the program are English speakers from both the U.S. and other countries. What all students have in common is an interest in using reading and writing skills more comfortably in their lives.
Our teachers are professional educators and our tutors are patient and dedicated individuals ready to help students meet their goals. The program also offers teaching opportunities for creative, responsible volunteers and student interns enrolled in teaching programs.
