Library needs volunteer tutors

The Sonoma Valley Regional Library and Adult Literacy Program of the Sonoma County Library are looking for volunteers to teach adults to read and write English.

There will be two sessions to introduce and train volunteers to become tutors: an orientation session on Wednesday, July 7, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.; and tutor training on Saturday, July 12, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Adult Literacy Program helps hundreds of adults learn to read and write in English in Sonoma County. “Being a teacher in this program is incredibly rewarding and is a wonderful way to contribute not only to a person’s life, but to the community, as well,” said tutor Tim Matthews.

The Adult Literacy program staff provides continual support as well as teaching materials. “The staff is always there to assist and to help us in any way they can,” states Matthews.

It is free to be a student in the program, but there is currently a waiting list for students to be paired up with teachers.

No registration is required for the orientation session on July 7. The library is located at 755 W. Napa St. For more information call Melissa Trunick, Tutor Coordinator, 545.0831, ext. 1573
