Project Read needs more tutors

For 27 years, Project Read-Menlo Park has been helping adults improve their reading and writing. At present, 60 tutors are matched with adults. However, many more are needed, according to Roberta Roth, library outreach specialist.

The next session of tutor training for Project Read begins Tuesday, May 7, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma St. in Menlo Park.

The second session runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 11. The final part of the training, on Wednesday, June 12, is a meeting for tutors who have started working regularly with students.

For more information, email Alice Bradshaw at or call Project Read-Menlo Park at 330-2525.
