New Literacy Initiatives
READ – LAPL Adult Literacy Services: Summer 2015
A newsletter written by students and tutors. Changing lives one chapter at a time.
This year Adult Literacy Services is inaugurating several new initiatives that are free to library patrons.
The first of these is Leamos, a web-based curriculum designed by Centro Latino for Literacy that teaches non-literate Spanish-speaking adults how to read and write in Spanish.
The second is Cell-Ed, which allows students to learn English anywhere, anytime, using their cell phone. This program is best for those with unlimited phone minutes and texting.
For more information about enrolling please call (213) 228-7037.
