Just a reminder that the Literacy Office requires that you take at least one continuing education class per year.  While the Literacy Office offers plenty of opportunities throughout the year administered by our staff for tutors who are unable to attend traditional classes, online options are available.  The Pro Literacy Network offers many self-paced, online courses for tutors at their website: http://www.proliteracyednet.org/articles.asp?mcid=2

Tutors: Reporting Volunteer Hours Online

It is very important that tutors in our literacy program report their volunteer time with us each month. Tutors can report their volunteer hours online. Volunteer hours to count for reporting purposes include tutoring time, preparation and travel time. To find the monthly report form from the library's homepage, start at http://www.tulsalibrary.org/, then hover  over--but don’t click-- on the INTERESTS button (near the top). You will see the choice for LITERACY in the first column.
