Program Overview

Alameda Reads is a FREE service of the Alameda Free Library.

The program has been helping adults improve their reading and writing skills for more than 35 years. Our adult learners are at least 18 years old. They often come to the program because school was not the right place for them to learn. People succeed in our no-pressure, non-academic environment. They have busy lives and want to be able to use their skills right away as community members, parents, workers and lifelong learners.
We provide adult learners individual attention so they can focus on their personal learning goals. They also become part of a vibrant learning community and can participate in tutoring, small group learning, computer-assisted learning and community-wide celebrations and events. Since Alameda Reads opened, we have helped thousands of adults learn how to do things like:
  • read books to their children
  • apply for a job
  • read a newspaper
  • write emails for work
  • pass the high school equivalency exam
