In an effort to become Earth friendly, the Literacy Office newsletter Lit Bits, which comes to you hot off the presses every 4 months, will now come to you digitally! Beginning with our next edition in August , we will email copies of Lit Bits to tutors and adult learners who have an email address on file with us. Tutors and learners who do not have an email address will still receive a paper copy of the newsletter in the mail.
Last week Oklahoma experienced a series of devastating wildfires that scorched over 93,000 acres and left hundreds homeless. Saturday in Tulsa, residents saw hazy orange skies and ash raining from the sky... visual evidence of the destruction and heartache that was impacting fellow Okies. As the smoke begins to clear, literally & figuratively, families and communities across Oklahoma will start rebuilding.
I hope everyone is staying cool out there! Our August book to discuss is What I Did for Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. This book is available at TCCL in several formats including large print, audio book, and downloadable audio book. Next week we will start with some specific questions about the book. Happy reading!
