The Troy Literacy Council launched a new program at the Tipp City Public Library this week that has been in the works for almost a year.
The Tipp Foundation contacted the Troy Literacy Council in December of 2021 on behalf of the Gillis Family Fund. The Gillis Family Fund is designated to help adults reach self-sufficiency and adult literacy. Ultimately, the Troy Literacy Council received a grant to establish a more prominent presence in Tipp City, Monroe Township, and the Bethel area.
Troy Literacy usually provides one-on-one tutoring to adults who need assistance building vocabulary, reading comprehension, math, digital literacy, or preparing for the GED. However, the Tipp Program is unique.
On October 4, 2022 Troy Literacy launched a walk-in tutoring service based out of the Tipp City Public Library. A tutor will be on hand every Tuesday from 6:30 to 7:30 to provide individual assistance on a walk-in basis. Adults are welcome to bring in resume, cover letters, or other documents that need proof-reading, papers they need help reading, or assistance studying math, preparing for the GED or the Citizenship Test.
The Tipp Program has been made possible by the Gillis Family Fund, the National Book Fund by ProLiteracy, the Tipp Library, and volunteers with the Troy Literacy Council.
