Pocatello’s Marshall Public Library is partnering with volunteer instructor Pamela Knight to launch a new adult literacy program.
About 11% of adults in Idaho lack the literacy skills to read a bedtime story to their children, the instructions on a medication bottle, or a voting ballot. With years of experience as a reading and language teacher, Pam is eager to share her passion for literacy through free classes at Marshall Public Library to help start adult learners on the path to success.
Classes meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at either 11 a.m. or noon. Small class size guarantees individual attention and instruction. Classes are free and open to all members of the public, but students must sign-up with the library to attend.
To sign-up and for more information on being either a student or a volunteer instructor, please call Amy Campbell at the library at 232-1263 ext. 106.
