Azulay, Judith M.
The Monroe County Library (Union, West Virginia) and Peterstown Public Library (West Virginia) conducted a project that involved recruitment, retention, coalition building, public awareness, training, rural oriented, basic literacy, collection development, tutoring, computer-assisted, and intergenerational/family programs. The project served a community of 10,000-25,000, and targeted intergenerational/families. Tutoring was done one-on-one and in small groups, using the Laubach, Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA), and whole language methods. The project served 97 adult learners and provided 3,038 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: adult basic education registration form, student intake/permanent record form, and examples of learner goals. (SWC)
