About the Literacy Program

Through RPL's Literacy Program, trained volunteer tutors provide one-on-one tutoring to English-speaking adults who want to improve their reading, writing and computer skills.

The Literacy Program is for English speakers. The library does not offer ESL courses.

Interested in becoming a student?

Adults can improve their reading, writing and computer skills through our Adult Literacy Program. Adults are carefully matched with trained volunteers and usually meet with their tutors weekly to improve their reading skills. English-speaking adults that read below high-school level should call us at (951)826-2238 or visit our office for more information. We strongly recommend that participants meet weekly with a tutor, and set aside additional time to practice at home.
