Adult Literacy

CCLS aims to support those in the community looking for literacy help.  In each county we work with an organization to provide literacy tutors for anyone seeking extra help.  Patrons are encouraged to contact their local library to make a connection with the appropriate organization, and to use the library space for any sessions. Libraries are encouraged to help bring in needed material for tutors if needed and a space for sessions.

CCLS also offers Penn Foster courses. These online free courses touch on workforce skills such as reading literacy, digital literacy, math skills, and soft skills.  Check out a course today.
