Calcasieu Parish Library Literacy Project. Final Report.
Calcasieu Parish Library, Lake Charles, LA.
The purpose of the Calcasieu Parish (Louisiana) literacy project was twofold: (1) to pool the resources of the existing local adult education agencies in the area; and (2) to perpetuate the advancement of literacy in the area by bringing together adult education students, qualified volunteer tutors, and needed adult education materials in an atmosphere conducive to learning. The project had five objectives: (1) to establish a basic resource collection and nine satellite collections of adult education materials; (2) to provide four locations for tutoring sessions and/or independent study; (3) to recruit adult education students and volunteer tutors; (4) to provide a mechanism for matching adult education students with qualified volunteer tutors; and (5) to provide training and orientation sessions for volunteer tutors and librarians involved in the program. The project was based on a cooperative agreement between the Calcasieu Parish Library, the Literacy Council of Southwest Louisiana, and Calcasieu's Adult Education Department. All five objectives were successful. (Budgetary information is included.) (NLA)
