Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the Michigan City Public Library is to provide a center for information, education, culture and recreation for all patrons throughout their life span, through its collections, programs and special services.
The Learning Center at the Michigan City Public Libary provides free tutoring in the areas of reading and math for students in grades 1-12. Additionally we tutor adults who are working towards the High School Equivalency (HSE) exam,learning English as a Second Language (ESL), and citizenship.
Tutors are matched with students and typically meet twice a week for an hour at a time. Training is provided and ongoing in the areas of literacy/reading and English language skills. All materials are provided to the tutor; we only ask for your time and dedication!
While tutoring can take place anytime that the library is open, all tutoring between matched tutors and students is to take place on the premises of the library, and background checks, provided free of charge, are necessary prior to tutoring.
