Work one on one with an adult tutor to improve your reading and literacy skills. Tutors meet with students in any branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. This service is free. They meet twice a week for 1 to 1½ hours at a time for a minimum of six months.

This is a self-guided program for adults with limited English skills. Students use books and videos to help them achieve English literacy skills. There is no time limit for this program, and our staff provides assistance as needed.

Parents of children under the age of five who are enrolled in our Adult Literacy or Limited English Proficiency program are eligible for free children's books. Our tutors and staff teach students how to read to their children.
