Did you know that you can take free non-credit courses through Universal Class with your TCCL library card number? You can enroll in up to five courses, and you have six months to complete each course. You can take courses that focus on developing specific knowledge and skills, like accounting, history, medical coding, language arts, office skills, etc. You can also take courses to prepare for the GED!

The literacy office must report on the activity in our program to our funders, and one of the best ways to demonstrate our program’s activity is by reporting volunteer hours. Tutors can report instruction time (time spent with a student), preparation time (time spent preparing for lessons), and even travel time (time traveling to and from lessons). Tutors should report their volunteer hours monthly. Hours can be turned in via our online Monthly Report Form (

This month's adult literacy book club selection is Clifton Taulbert's memoir of his childhood in the segregated South. "It celebrates the resilience and warmth of his relatives, neighbors and friends, who eagerly await the annual minstrel show." ~NoveList

Don't fret! A Dream That Walks, Setting Realistic Goals is offered a couple times each year. It is a fun class that adult learners and their tutors enjoy. If you missed the most recent workshop (Sat. Sept. 8) or you did attend and would like to continue working on a plan with support from Cleo Yuan, Literacy Specialist, let us know! Cleo would be happy to meet one-on-one with you so you can continue working through the material. Just call the office and we will get you set up for a one-hour meeting at a library of your choice. 918-549-7400.

Take a break from your workbooks and try out the website Look, Cover, Write and Check for a fun way to work on spelling skills with your adult learner. Choose from the pre-loaded spelling lists, or create your own! First, learners will review the word, then click a button to cover it, type the word, then click a button to compare. Simple--yet effective! Check it out at http://www.amblesideprimary.com/ambleweb/lookcover/lookcover.html
