If You Can Read This . . .

If you can read this, you can help someone learn to read. Harris County Public Library will train you to be a volunteer (unpaid) literacy tutor and will supply you with materials. You would be teaching an adult, one-on-one. There will be a free tutor training at the Aldine Library on Thursday, February 22, from 1:00-4:00 pm. If you feel that this would be a good way for you to help your community, you can register online at https://tinyurl.com/ydbcnqb7. If you have any questions, please ask us.
