Adult Literacy

Read the Literacy Newsletter

Literacy of Northern New York trains volunteers to provide one-to-one tutoring to adults who need help with reading, writing, math or English as a second language. Volunteers interested in tutoring participate in a training course and are then matched with an adult who needs help with literacy skills. LNNY assesses the literacy level of each student and provides the books and materials used for tutoring. Volunteers and students meet in public places such as libraries.

Our office is located on the top floor of the Potsdam Library. People looking for literacy assistance can call Maria Morrison at 265-0194 or e-mail her at lnnystlawrence@live.com.

More information about Literacy of Northern NY can be found on our website.
