Description:

Library literacy volunteers help our whole community. The Santa Barbara Public Library System’s volunteer Adult Literacy Program seeks patient, creative tutors who want to help adults develop the language and math skills they need for jobs and life. New volunteers take a nine-hour training course before being matched with an adult learner for one-to-one tutoring. A two-session weekend training course begins Saturday, January 14, and concludes Saturday, January 21. The training course will meet from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Townley Room, Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu Street.

Volunteer tutors work once or twice a week to help adult learners reach personal goals, such as getting or doing a better job, getting a GED, becoming a citizen, or helping children with homework. Tutors can make a huge difference in the life of an individual and your community.

The Library System provides training, support, space, and materials for volunteers. Interested? Contact the Adult Literacy Office for more information about volunteering or to register for the training class. Call 805-564-5619, email literacy@sbplibrary.org or visit the Library’s website at www.sbplibrary.org.
