...What we do
For more than 45 years we have offered free one-to-one tutoring in basic reading, writing, and spelling to English speaking adults. We also provide similar services and small group instruction in conversational English, reading, writing, and spelling to non-English speaking adults.
We teach approximately 120 adults each year and have approximately 30 students waiting for tutors!
Hit a Home Run for Literacy
Join us for a night with the Frederick Keys on Friday, June 21st! Gates open at 6 p.m. and the game begins at 7 p.m., plus it is a fireworks night. Tickets are on sale now at the LCFC office at 110 E. Patrick Street for $10 each.
This is a fundraiser for the council, with the proceeds going
toward program expenses such as books and other teaching materials to
benefit our students.
You can get your tickets by coming by during office hours, or you can mail in a check and the tickets will be mailed to you. If you can't attend on the 21st, tickets may be exchanged for another date.
A terrific gift or inexpensive night out with the family while helping a great cause!
