Adult Literacy Programs

Funded in part by a grant from the California State Library, the Adult Literacy Services program, "Let's Read Altadena," of the Altadena Library District has been serving the residents of Altadena since 1988. Instruction is provided by volunteer tutors who have completed a 5-hour tutor training course. Literacy is currently housed at the Bob Lucas Memorial Branch Library and Literacy Center. Services offered:

One-on-one tutoring: Tutors are matched with a learner for regularly scheduled study sessions. 

Classes to improve English reading, writing, and comprehension skills. Classes are held M-F @10:30AM at the Bob Lucas Branch.

Self-paced computer program and small group: Learning sessions designed to meet the learner's interests and needs.

Services are free of charge to any adult. Speakers of other languages are also encouraged to enroll in our program once they have mastered basic spoken English.
