The Glendale Library Arts & Culture provides services, materials and activities to enrich life, foster literacy, inspire intellectual curiosity and stimulate the imagination
In addition to all services normally provided by public libraries, Glendale Library Arts & Culture has a strong Literacy Program focused on helping adult learners improve their reading and English conversation skills through one-on-one tutoring or class participation.
Volunteering with the Adult Literacy Program has been a very rewarding experience for me, and the process of getting involved was easy and simple. I have been working with a student since February 2012 and seeing the progress with him has been great. My interest in becoming an educator within the next few years has also greatly increased...On the same day that I emailed the LIbrary with my interest in volunteering I received a reply from the program's coordinator. I met with him the following week, and after a little paperwork I was working with the student at a branch library near my house. I strongly recommend this volunteer opportunity!
