Chester County Library, Final Performance Report for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI, Library Literacy Program.
This Final Performance Report provides information and data to the U.S. Department of Education for the federally-funded Library Literacy Program. The report includes the following sections: general information; quantitative data; and narrative report. The Chester County Library (Chester, South Carolina) serves a community of 25,000-50,000 people. It used the Title VI funds for space renovation and basic literacy services. The project involved the Laubach tutoring method, and the "Ready to Read!" method, which uses newspapers to teach adults to read. Tutoring was provided in one-on-one and small group settings. The major goal for the project was met by completing the renovations to a section of the library's basement and establishing a new Community Learning Center. Two literacy classes using the "Ready to Read!" method were begun. The library also recruited and hired a Library Literacy Coordinator. The project allowed the library to further commit both facility and staff to the local literacy cause. (Includes a floor plan of the Community Learning Center, project recruitment brochure, and promotional poster.) (SWC)
