Cole, Lucy; Fraser, Ruth
The Columbia County Public Library (Lake City, Florida) conducted a project that involved recruitment, retention, public awareness, training, basic literacy, collection development, tutoring, computer- assisted, other technology, intergenerational/family, and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. The project served a community of 25,000-50,000, and targeted workforce/workplace learners, seniors/older citizens, and intergenerational/families. Tutoring was done one-on-one, using the Laubach and Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA) methods. The project served 160 adult learners and provided 3,000 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. Attachments include: tutor session record form, promotional materials, newsletters, program brochures, Columbia Literacy Council Board members, literacy statistics, and a videotape. (SWC)
