Teach Someone to Read...Change a Life! Literacy is the key to independence, self-sufficiency and pride. Help empower someone by providing them with the tools needed to get back on track. 1-2 hours a week can change someone's life - and your life, too. Literacy Plus, Hayward Public Library's adult literacy program, conducts a free training for new volunteer tutors three times per year. Volunteers must attend a New Tutor Orientation, followed by a Tutor Training class.
