Literacy Matters No. 1

LITERACY MATTERS – Did you know…that 36 million adults in the United States cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third-grade level.*  Now imagine being that person who cannot read or do basic math.  “It took me a long time to finally pick up the phone and call you.  And this is hard to say, I cannot read and need help.” That was the start of a phone call to CCLC from a new adult learner.  With one hour once a week, CCLC and its tutors work to help such individuals and reduce those literacy numbers here in Charles County.  You can be a part of this too!  SIGN UP FOR OUR FEBRUARY 29 WORKSHOP.  Learn about this rewarding experience and of the impact YOU can make on one person’s life.  (Pre-registration is a must.).  Call the office (301-934-6488) or email (charlescountyliteracy@comcast.net) for info.  LITERACY DOES MATTER.
