MEET N' GREET WITH NEW STAFF
FRIDAY MAY 3RD, 1 - 2 PM
MAHON LIBRARY CONFERENCE ROOM
Literacy Lubbock has had big changes in the first quarter of the year! We’ve promoted a new Executive Director and hired on a new Director of Volunteer Programs.
Come join us for our Meet n’ Greet and take the chance to talk to our staff. Ask any questions you might have, hear about new programs and plans we’re hoping to roll out in the future, and get the chance to network.
Refreshments will be provided. Please join us as we start a new chapter in Literacy Lubbock’s story!
PAINTING WITH A PURPOSE
TUESDAY, MAY 21ST, 7 - 9 PM
PAINTING WITH A TWIST
Join Literacy Lubbock as we Paint with a Purpose! This fundraiser will help support our adult education programs, including GED test prep, our ESL classes, and teaching adults the basics on how to read.
How do you help? Simply by signing up to paint! An artist will walk you through how to paint a stunning work of art. So bring your friends! Have a good time! Literacy Lubbock will have snacks available and you’re more than welcome to bring your own drinks (yes, Painting with a Twist has corkscrews). It’s a perfect opportunity to give back, relax, and let your inner artist run free. So please, sign up today!
TINY TOTS STORYTIME
EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 12:30 PM
At Tiny Tots storytime, children have a story read to them and then are given a free copy of that book to take home with them! Studies have shown that larger home libraries lead to a stronger desire to read–and a stronger desire to read leads to better academic performances.
We have Tiny Tots sessions at the Godeke, Groves, and Wolfforth Libraries; The Dream Center; and the Guadalupe Early Learning Center.
Please note, the Guadalupe Early Learning Center is only for students registered with that program. All other sessions are free to the public!
