Mooney, Sharon Lopez
The West Marin Literacy Project, a project of the Marin County Free Library (San Rafael, California), involved recruitment, retention, coalition building, public awareness, training, rural oriented, tutoring, computer- assisted, intergenerational/family, and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. The project served a community of under 10,000 people, and targeted the homebound, migrant workers, intergenerational/families, and ESL learners. Tutoring was done one-on-one and in small groups, using the Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA) method. The project served 62 adult learners and provided 2,772 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. Appendices include: recruitment flyers in Spanish and in English, recruitment brochure, program newsletter, tutor evaluation form, library card, and progress chart. (SWC)
