Summers County Public Library, Final Performance Report for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI, Library Literacy Program.
Ziegler, Myra; Garten, Thelma
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 Literate Adults Mean Prosperity (LAMP) project of the Summers County Public Library (Hinton, West Virginia), provided recruitment, retention, training, rural oriented, basic literacy, tutoring, and computer assisted programs. The project served a community of 10,000-25,000 people, and targeted rural residents with basic skill levels below 8th grade level. Tutoring was done one-on-one, using the Laubach method. The project served 27 adult learners, and provided a total of 2,400 hours of direct tutoring service during the 1992-1993 fiscal year. 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. Includes letters written by a student to the President of the United States to request continued funding for the program, news articles about the program, and a LAMP program brochure. (SWC)
