This final performance report provides project outcome information and data to the U.S. Department of Education for the federally-funded Library Literacy Program. The Lonesome Pine Regional Library (Wise, Virginia) conducted a project that involved recruitment, retention, public awareness, training, rural oriented programs, basic literacy, and tutoring programs. The project served a community of 100,000-200,000, and targeted adults who wanted to learn or to enhance reading and writing and/or math skills. The project used the Laubach tutoring method, with one-on-one and small group instruction. The project served 399 adult learners, provided 20,493 hours of direct tutoring service, and involved 86 volunteer tutors. The report provides a comparison of actual accomplishments to goals and objectives set forth in the grant application; a comparison between proposed and actual expenditures; specific details of activities undertaken; the role the library played in the accomplishment of the goals and objectives; agencies and organizations that assisted in the project; and the impact of the federal project on the ongoing program of the library.
