In an effort to become Earth friendly, the Literacy Office newsletter Lit Bits, which comes to you hot off the presses every 4 months, will now come to you digitally! Beginning with our next edition in August , we will email copies of Lit Bits to tutors and adult learners who have an email address on file with us. Tutors and learners who do not have an email address will still receive a paper copy of the newsletter in the mail.
