Major Volunteer Opportunity

Adult Literacy Tutors Needed

To volunteer as a tutor, you have to
1) be able to make a 6-month commitment to tutor 2-3 hours a week,
2) make an appointment to be interviewed by an area coordinator, and
3) complete a Tutor Training course.

Currently, the closest Literacy Center is at
Mid-Valley Regional Branch
16244 Nordhoff Street, Van Nuys

To make an appointment, call
Mary Ann Arnsdorf, West Valley Coordinator,
at (818) 895-3663

The closest 2006 Tutor Training courses are on
September 16
at Venice – Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch
501 S. Venice Blvd. – (310) 821-1769
November 18
at Mid-Valley Regional Branch

When training is completed, volunteers can tutor at Platt Branch immediately. Once Platt's center is completed, 2007 training sessions will also be scheduled at Platt.

If you're interested in the program, come to the Friends September 11 Board Meeting (at 7 pm). Adult Literacy Services spokesperson Sheila Weisberg will be making a presentation and would be delighted to discuss your involvement with you in detail.

Readers Needed

Our GAB program needs a few more voices to read to children 2 hours a week (or every other week), especially on Saturdays. Contact Children's Librarian Barbara Mattison at (818) 340-9386.
