Volunteer to teach an adult to read

DOWNEY - The Downey City Library needs volunteers to teach an adult to read through its Adult Literacy program.Training sessions for volunteer literacy tutors will be held Jan. 13, 20 and 27 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Cormack Room. Tutors will receive 10 hours of training on a variety of tutoring techniques and may attend ongoing literacy support meetings at the library. "By volunteering two or more hours per week, you can give an adult the skills they need to become a successful worker, parent or citizen," said literacy coordinator Claudia Dailey. "Both tutors and students find this program rewarding: it changes their lives." To register, call the Literacy Office at (562) 904-7360, ext. 123 or e-mail cdailey@downeyca.org. Registration is also accepted in person at the library, located at 11121 Brookshire Ave.
