Help For Adults Learning to Read

literacy

ProLiteracy, a national literacy organization, estimates that 30 million people in the United States older than 16 don’t read well enough to fill out a job application.

The Denton Public Library supports literacy programs for all ages, and offers an adult literacy program that connects those who need help learning to read with professional tutors. Participants will receive one-on-one reading instruction; tutors and students will determine when and where to meet for this free program.

Applications for the program are available at all three Denton Public Library locations and staff will be happy to assist those who need help with the form. The program is available to adult residents of Denton County who speak English proficiently.
