This weekend, to honor Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, Phinney Books in Seattle be hosting volunteers from their friends at Literacy Source at the store from 12 to 2 on Saturday and 2 to 4 on Sunday. They’ll be spreading the word on the good work Literacy Source does, and the store will have a selection of discounted books you can purchase to donate to their library.
Here’s some info about Literacy Source:
Literacy Source has been providing unique and responsive adult literacy services since 1986. During our first few years, we focused primarily on adult basic literacy instruction in Seattle’s North End. Today, our services also include English as a Second Language (ESL) classes and tutoring at all levels, computer literacy, workplace basic skills, citizenship classes and naturalization assistance for low income individuals, and GED prep. In addition to offering classes at our main Center in Lake City, we partner with a variety of organizations to provide classes offsite at the King County Correctional Facility, and in schools, community centers and churches in South King County (SeaTac and Tukwila), and throughout Seattle.
The Literacy Source mission is to build a literate community by providing learner-centered instruction to adults in English literacy and basic life skills. Literacy Source believes that all adults can improve their basic life skills and that community volunteers, trained and supported by professional staff, can make this happen. We welcome the challenge of developing the habit of independent lifelong learning.
Might we suggest calling Phinney Books to make a donation if you can’t swing by in person? Their phone number is 206-297-2665.
Thanks for sharing the love of reading.
