Become a volunteer adult literacy tutor and make a powerful, positive difference in the life of another adult in your community. Thirty (30) adults are currently waiting to be matched with a literacy tutor at Sonoma County Libraries. We have the most need for tutors in Santa Rosa, Sonoma Valley, Rohnert Park & Windsor right now. If you can tutor 2hrs a week at any these library location, please sign up for our March training dates at Central Library (details below).

We are looking for empathetic volunteers who want to help an adult learner improve their reading and writing skills and achieve their literacy goals. No experience necessary. Free training and materials provided. Flexible hours and library locations throughout the county are possible once training is completed at our Central Library.

What We Do: The Sonoma County Library Adult Literacy Program provides FREE training, support and materials to volunteer tutors, who meet one-to-one with an adult learner at their local Sonoma County library two hours a week. Right now, we have adult students waiting for a literacy tutor at: Santa Rosa, Sonoma Valley, Rohnert Park & Windsor library locations. Tutors volunteer 2hr a week to meet with an adult learner and file simple monthly hours/instruction reports.

A 2-part NEW tutor training will be held on March 13, 2019 from 6pm - 8:30 pm and March 16th from 10 am - 2:30 pm at Santa Rosa Central Library (must register in advance and attend both training dates).
