Ready to Read Expands

literacy icon
Last year the Birmingham Public Library in partnership with the Literacy Council began a new program to help citizens in Birmingham improve their reading skills. Adults (age 18 and over) wishing to work on their reading skills are invited to a library tutoring session to meet with trained tutors. The program began at Five Points West Library, meeting two days a week. This year, thanks to a federal grant awarded to Lawson State’s Adult Education Program, the program expands to the North Avondale, Pratt City, and North Birmingham libraries.

These sessions are free and no registration is required. For more information contact Mary Warden at the Literacy Council at (205)326-1925.
