Why you should read ...
Reading equals self-confidence, empowerment, better health and economic growth.
Adult Literacy Services @ the Detroit Public Library
We offer literacy skills assessment, one-on-one tutoring, GED preparation, computer skills training, tutor training and certification, learner practice kits and resources for literacy service providers.
Learn to read or improve your reading skills
Our program is a dedicated one-to-one tutoring process and periodically offers selective small-group instructional sessions in other subjects such as mathematics. We endeavor to match you with a tutor who will focus on your goals.
Become a volunteer tutor
Detroit Public Library’s Literacy Program needs tutor volunteers for two-hour sessions per week to help adults improve their reading skills. Our tutor training workshops provide information and strategies for teaching students how to read or improve their reading and comprehension skills.
