The St. George Center for Reading and Writing
The "Centers for Reading and Writing" is the adult literacy program of The New York Public Library. The Centers help adults who have difficulties reading and writing improve their communication skills in a student-centered environment. The Centers are welcoming places where adults come together to share learning experiences. They provide instruction in small groups, facilitated by volunteer tutors who are recruited, trained and supported by professional staff members. There is an accessible, high-interest collection of books and multimedia technology which encourages and enhances independent learning.
