Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library, Final Performance Report for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI, Library Literacy Program.
The Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library conducted a project in fiscal year 1992 that involved recruitment, retention, public awareness, training, basic literacy, collection development, tutoring, intergenerational/family, and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. The project served a community of 25,000-50,000 and targeted the learning disabled, inmates of correctional facilities, intergenerational/families, and ESL students. Tutoring was done one-on-one and in small groups, using the Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA) method. The project served 271 adult learners, and provided 7,550 hours of direct tutoring service. The report provides a comparison of actual accomplishments to goals and objectives set forth in the grant application; 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.
