ABE services provide instructions in reading, writing, and math to adults seeking to improve their skills. As a basic education program for adults, we offer “Each One Teach One” individual tutoring to help our students meet their goals. Some students want to be able to read to their children or help them with schoolwork. Whatever the student’s goal is, we are prepared to help him or her meet it. In addition, many students hope to attain a GED and we provide the tutors to accomplish that goal as well.

The Baby Book program began in 1994 when the Executive Director, Helen Crunick, envisioned a need for a project which would help break the cycle of intergenerational illiteracy.

The Baby Book Bag project features bright yellow tote bags which are hand-stuffed by community volunteers; screen-printed with a special logo; filled with children’s books, community library listings, and literature outlining the importance of reading to babies from birth.

If you would like to sponsor this program your logo will be featured on the bags too.

By working with new mothers instilling the importance of reading, the Literacy Council attempts to address the problem at its earliest stage.

Over the years, the Literacy Council has distributed more than 24,000 Baby Book Bags to new mothers in our community.

If you or your organization would to volunteer to assist with preparing the Baby Books Bags please call (724) 228-6188 or email info@lcswpa.org.
