Become a volunteer Adult Literacy Tutor at the Library


(NAPA, Calif--) The Napa County Library is celebrating its 30th anniversary of adult literacy programs, which has helped thousands of local residents improve their reading and writing skills. Come share the rewards of helping an adult learner to read and write. 

Volunteer tutors help other community members build their basic skills for work and life. Volunteer tutors work once or twice a week to help an adult learner reach important goals. Adults come to the Literacy Center for many reasons, including preparing for job promotion, working towards a General Equivalency Diploma (GED), becoming a citizen, or learning to read a book to their child. 

Prior experience is not required; the Literacy Center will train you to work with an adult learner. The training is free and qualifies volunteers to tutor in the program. Here is a chance to share the gift of literacy with adults seeking to improve their lives. 

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please attend an orientation session to learn about the program.  Two orientation sessions will be offered in the month of May. One session will be offered at the Calistoga Library, located at 1108 Myrtle Street in Calistoga, on May 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and the second session will be offered at the Yountville Library, located at 6516 Washington Street in Yountville, on May 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. 

For additional information, please call Robin Rafael, Literacy and Volunteer Services Supervisor, at (707) 253-4283.


The Board of Supervisors and staff of Napa County are dedicated to preserving and sustaining Napa County for present and future generations as a community with generous open space, a thriving agricultural industry and a quality human and natural environment.
