Tombigbee Regional Library System. Final Performance Report for Period 10-1-88 - 9-30-89.
The Tombigbee Regional Library in West Point, Mississippi, conducted a literacy program from October 1, 1988 to September 30, 1989. During the period, the program recruited 166 students and 64 new tutors, provided funding for 110 students not eligible for Job Training Partnership Act funding, solicited and used community resources and funds, and expanded to seven other system libraries. The program also refined and improved its training methods and recordkeeping and hired more staff. Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) were created for each student. Instructional materials relevant to students' needs were used. Two computer laboratories were donated through the efforts of community groups and were in constant use for student practice. The program was regarded as successful by project organizers and the community. It is felt that the library atmosphere and its community support contributed greatly to the success of the program.
