Adult New Reader Collection - Model Project. Final Performance Report.
The Adult New Reader Collection-Model Project proposed to serve five targeted groups by providing literacy, language development, and English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) materials. The five groups included: literacy tutors; students identified by the staff and matched to their trained tutors; adult library users not connected to a literacy program who browse through the collection; adults learning to read English who need special ESL materials; teachers working with adults learning to read English and their students. The project established three major goals: to significantly enlarge the current adult new reader collection; to develop and enlarge the basic language building collection of materials already part of the literature section's collection; and to expand the ESL collection of print and non-print with multiple copies for greater availability. Details of administration of the project are provided, including a breakdown of staff time and use of funds. (KM)
