Monterey County libraries are seeking literacy program tutors

Twenty five percent of adults in Monterey County struggle to read a prescription label, fill out a job application, or help their children with homework. And folks at the Monterey County Free Libraries are offering you a way to do something about it.

Volunteers are needed throughout the county to help others learn how to read. New volunteers may join the program at any point during the year by registering for the libraries' new tutor training.

The next two part orientation-and-new-tutor training will be held in the Monterey Peninsula. Attendance at both sessions is required for new tutors.

Part I: Tuesday, January 20, 6-830 pm at Marina Branch Library, 190 Seaside Circle, Marina.

Part II: Thursday, January 22, 6-830 pm at Seaside Branch Library, 550 Harcourt Avenue, Seaside.

For more information or to register for training, call 831-883-7597, or email on or after January 2nd, 2015.
