Library literacy programs use evidence-based techniques to provide one-to-one and small group tutoring and instruction. Programs are virtual through learning apps and YouTube, learner-driven, and they support adults in setting and achieving their personal goals. They connect learners with books, programming, and other library resources. And they provide opportunities for learners to develop and use leadership skills.
For those who do not have access to the internet, computers, or a smartphone, the libraries have computers and laptops available to use during regular business hours. Wi-Fi extends into the parking areas and is available 24-hours-a-day.
