The Laclede County Library has decided to move away from sponsoring literacy and has asked us to move to a new location. As a nonprofit we have no funds that are not encumbered. The time frame is too short for us to have a large fundraiser. We are seeking funds to help us rent a space during the time while we plan a fund raiser. Please help the ladies and men who study here and try to improve their lives by passing their GED.
We are planning our largest graduation ever in November. The lives we have changed have been numerous and we are afraid that losing our tutoring rooms at the library will mean that we can help fewer and fewer adults. Over the past 30 years over 4000 adults have learned to read and / or earned their high school diploma. In the last month we have held over 300 tutoring sessions. We have served adults from the ages of 9 to 90. We have helped kindergartners who need phonics and phonemic awareness to great grandmothers who only want to read to their children. If you can find it in your heart to promote literacy for all please donate.
