Literacy Volunteers

Change the World For One Person.

Since 1983, more than 2000 adult learners have received FREE individual and small group instruction. Volunteers at the Norwood Library are helping people in our community improve their reading, writing and conversational English skills. We also help students prepare for their GED and Citizenship tests.
