Are you a reading addict? Then check out this books and reading blog!

We have a blog just for book lovers called Reading Addict, which can be found under the Interests tab of our home page. Reading Addict’s collection of book recommendations come from Nick, Rebecca, Laura and other library employees as they share their latest reads and give their thoughts on the world of books. We’ve also recently added occasional video segments called One Minute Book Reviews to the blog. Whether you’re a hard core bibliophile or just a casual reader, you’ll want to give us a look!

help with summer utility bills

On July 9, 2012 DHS will begin accepting applications for utility assistance through the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LiHEAP).

Eligibility is based on the size and the monthly income of the household. The one-time payments are $200 for a one-person household and $250 for a home with two or more people.

Write for Our Newsletter

In our quarterly newsletter Lit Bits, there is a section dedicated to the writings of adult learners and tutors called Learner to Learner. This section is a place for tutors to share learning strategies that they’ve found to be successful with their learners, or brag about their learner's latest achievement. Adult learners can submit book reviews, creative writings, letters, recipes, stories, or other items they’d like to share with other people in the program. 

Be a Power Up! Volunteer

Hey tutors!

Have some free time on your hands and want to help integrate new literacy students to the program? We need volunteers to assist us with our 2 hour orientation sessions for incoming students in which we discuss how the program works, what the expectations are of both students and their prospective tutors, and goal setting strategies in detail. 
 
If you think you might be interested in becoming a Power Up! volunteer, please call the Literacy Office at 918-549-7400.
