Library lovers, consider sharing the gift of reading.
If you would like to volunteer to tutor adults in reading, writing or English, then get acquainted at a special program Monday April 12 at 6 p.m. at the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library, 101 Washington St.
The program is hosted by the Literacy Volunteers of Ocean County, a non-profit, volunteer driven organization which is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of adult learners. Volunteers teach them basic reading and writing skills, and English as a second language, so they can participate more fully in family, workplace and community life.
Through the program, adult learners have been able to obtain a driver’s license, earn a high school equivalency diploma, and increase their ability to get better jobs and be more productive workers.
You do not need any teaching experience and it is not necessary to know a foreign language to become a volunteer.
For more information call Literacy Volunteers of Ocean County at 732-864-9646.
This program is free and open to the public.
