The Ascension Parish Library in Gonzales and Donaldsonville recently trained a group of volunteer literacy tutors to help adults in Ascension Parish improve their reading and writing skills.

Tutors learned about topics such as instructional techniques, goal setting, lesson planning, and foundational literacy concepts. Volunteer literacy tutors help the Ascension Parish Library Adult Literacy Program provide free one-on-one tutoring in reading and writing to assist adults in reaching their potential as workers, parents, community members, and life-long learners.

For further information on programs, please call the Ascension Parish Library at 647-3955 in Gonzales, 622-3339 in Galvez, 673-8699 in Dutchtown, and 473-8052 in Donaldsonville.
