Imagine if you could not read to your child, fill out a job application, or write an email? An estimated 440,000 adults in San Diego County struggle with these skills. The Carlsbad City Library Learning Center works with English-speaking adults who wish to improve their reading, writing, and computer skills to meet their life goals. We provide all of the tools for you to be successful as a tutor including extensive training, free books and materials.
