About

What if you couldn't read? What would you do? How about helping an adult learn to read? Just think of the changes you could help make in that person's life and in his/her family. Learning to read is like a pebble thrown into a creek. The ripples go on and on. We cover six library branches, from north of Rinaldi to south of Ventura Blvd., including the Encino/Tarzana Library, West Valley Regional Library (or Reseda Library as some call it), Northridge Library, Granada Hills Library (or Petit Park Library as it is sometimes called), Porter Ranch Library, and Mid-Valley Regional Library. We serve a greatly diverse group of people who are seeking help to get a job, get their GED, become a citizen, or simply make a better life for themselves and for their families. No special skills are required, only your desire to help someone better their life!

All training and tutoring materials are provided free of charge. We interview and assess all potential tutors and students to match pairs who will fit each others' learning styles and schedules.
