The Adult Literacy Program at the Del Norte County Library is currently seeking bright, motivated Volunteer Literacy Tutors.

Our program offers adults in the community a chance to improve skills in reading, writing, spelling, or math. We provide training, materials, and a safe space for learning.

Adults who lack basic literacy skills may have trouble finding meaningful work, helping their kids succeed in school, or obtaining health information. You can make a real difference in someone's life by becoming a Volunteer Literacy Tutor!

Mission Statement

Del Norte Reads is a grant funded program that works in conjunction with the Del Norte County Library District to provide free literacy services to community members. We proudly provide FREE assistance with reading, writing, math, computer literacy, high school equivalency and much more. Learners are paired with caring tutors who provide individualized instruction with all aspects of functional literacy. We do this because we believe education is the most deterministic factor in well-being.

Description

In 1988, Del Norte County was awarded funding through the California library services act. From 1988 to 2004 the literacy program went through several iterations, ranging from inhouse to mobile literacy services and even outsourcing to different organizations. Today, the name of this program is Del Norte Reads. We are the only literacy program in Del Norte that offers customized one-to-one or small group learning for adults and families. All of our services are free to our learners. We are looking for compassionate volunteers to engage our hard working learners. An hour a week can change someone's life. So if you have a desire to make a meaningful difference in our community, please consider becoming a volunteer at Del Norte Reads!
