Indiana Free Library Inc. Literacy Program.
The Indiana Free Library Literacy Program had two major goals during Fiscal Year 1989: to maintain and expand the present services and to extend the existing literacy program. Tutors were recruited through public service announcements and extensive free coverage in the Indiana Gazette. Four tutor training workshops were held to train 40 new tutors. Tutor inservice programs addressed the following topics: using computers with literacy students, English as a Second Language, teaching spelling, and alcohol and drug abuse awareness. During the year, 52 students were served; 15 new students were recruited. The Literacy Council established a committee to help indigent students obtain discounted or free eye exams and glasses. Six newsletters were published. A student group was formed to increase student involvement, recruitment, and retention. Meetings were not well attended. (Most of the document consists of the following attachments: a budget, public service announcements, newspaper coverage, list of materials purchased, student survey, Literacy Council minutes, newsletters, and information regarding student group meetings.)
