Spread the Word—Literally. Become a Volunteer Literacy Tutor

If you are visiting this website, it’s a good bet that you know reading’s fundamental value to your day-to-day life. Odds are equally likely that you cannot imagine life without it. But it is a sad fact that 1 in 5 Texans--your neighbors--don’t have to imagine; they are living it—every hour of every day.

Harris County Public Library has long been committed to providing basic literacy classes to all those who want them, but we cannot do that without a team of dedicated volunteer tutors.  On Friday, March 7 at High Meadows Branch Library, we will be holding a tutor training workshop. No teaching experience needed.

Share the gift of reading. Register today.
