Free Literacy Help @ North Channel Branch Library


Did you know that North Channel Library offers free Adult Literacy tutoring? If you or someone you know struggles with reading, wants to improve basic reading and writing skills, or to work towards obtaining a GED, our tutors would be happy to help! Contact a staff member to have a Literacy Assessment scheduled, and after it is performed our Literacy Team will place you with one of our volunteer Literacy tutors. Tutors meet with Literacy students one or two days per week for 1-2 hours, and continue tutoring sessions for at least 6 months or until the student's learning goals are met.

If you are interested in this program, or in becoming a tutor, please contact us by phone at: 281-457-1631, or visit us in person at: 15741 Wallisville Rd. Houston, TX 77049. You may also contact our Literacy and ESL Services Specialist here
