Reading and Talking by Cindy Hulsey

Ginnie Graham, columnist for the Tulsa World, recently wrote a wonderful article about reading. Her column made my heart sing. It sounded like it had been written by a librarian. She totally gets the benefits of reading, summing up by stating, “Reading is about escapism, imagination, learning, enjoyment, healing, thought-provoking, inspiration, laughter, sadness or just good storytelling.” Amen!

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.
