This report documents the progress made by the South Carolina State Library in providing volunteer programs and services for illiterate adults, promoting the cooperative development and planning of literacy services throughout the state, and assisting local literacy programs with tutor training, program development, management, and recordkeeping during 1988. Activities carried out by the library included the following: (1) conducting an employability skills workshop for adult new readers that could be replicated by other libraries; (2) giving a program management series including Laubach Literacy Action and Literacy Volunteers of America programs to board members of six local literacy councils; (3) facilitating and coordinating Laubach Literacy Action tutoring training workshops throughout the state; (4) assisting in setting up English-as-a-Second-Language workshops; (5) training and certifying 10 tutors and trainers in the Literacy Volunteers of America Basic Tutor Training and Workshop Leader Training programs; and (6) training staff in using the LITMAS software package at various libraries/literacy councils. Evaluation of the project showed that the majority of the goals and objectives set were carried out successfully, though some reached only a small proportion of the literacy providers in the state. The activities provided needed services to local volunteer literacy councils. (The agreement for professional services between the South Carolina State Library and the South Carolina Literacy Association is appended to this report.) (KC)
