Volunteer & Adult Literacy Program

Volunteer & Adult Literacy Program


Volunteering provides new job skills, enhances personal growth and encourages community involvement. Volunteering at Douglas County Libraries can fulfill high school graduation requirements and other community service obligations. Potential volunteers can logon to, contact their local library or call Volunteer Services at 303-791-READ.

Adult Literacy Program

The Douglas County Libraries Adult Literacy Program provides free, one-on-one tutoring for adults who want to learn English as a second language, prepare for the GED exam or improve basic skills in reading, writing, vocabulary, spelling or math. The Program also provides volunteer conversation partners for adults who have learned English in their native countries, but need practice speaking it in an informal setting. To participate in the program or volunteer, please call 303-791-READ.
