Mission 
The Sonoma County Library Adult Literacy Program provides one to one tutoring for adults who wish to improve their literacy skills.  Our program is learner centered – we work with the student in accomplishing his/her goals.

Location
Central Library Annex (behind the Central Library)

Services we offer

Basic reading and writing
Students work individually with a tutor for a minimum of two hours per week.

Families for Literacy
This program introduces reading as a family value to adult learners who have at least one preschool child and are enrolled in the basic reading and writing literacy program.

Inmate Tutoring
Tutors work individually with inmates on basic reading and writing at the two detention facilities in Sonoma County.  A special security orientation and clearance through the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department is required of all tutors in the inmate program, along with a two year commitment.
