I'm interested in helping someone learn to read. How do I apply to become a literacy tutor at the library?

Recent statistics indicate that approximately 1 in 6 adults in Oklahoma perform at the most basic or below basic literacy levels. The Ruth G. Hardman Adult Literacy Service, located at the Central Library, promotes literacy across the lifespan through emergent and family literacy outreach initiatives and adult basic and English language instruction.

The program currently has a large number of students on their waiting list, and is in great need of additional volunteer tutors. If you are 18 or older, a high school graduate or GED recipient, and are interested in becoming a tutor, please contact the Literacy Center at 918-549-7400 for information on available tutoring options.
