Literacy Volunteers of North Tonawanda has a goal: to eliminate illiteracy in the Tonawandas.
The organization trains volunteers to teach reading, writing, and English as a second language, to adults.
Literacy Volunteers offers twice-yearly tutor training workshops.
The next scheduled nine-session class runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, Sept. 15 to Nov. 10, in the North Tonawanda Public Library, 505 Meadow Drive. There's a $25 fee.
Currently, more than 60 people aged 19 to 68 are being tutored in basic reading or English as a second language.
