Since 1980, the Family Literacy Center has provided free, one-to-one tutoring for adults who live or work in the Lapeer County area and want to read, write or speak English better. We also offer several workshops for families to help children develop good reading skills. We are now offering tutoring for children in the Lapeer County area in targeted school groups. This program has been made possible through a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The Family Literacy Center and the Lapeer District Library are partners for literacy in Lapeer County.

The Family Literacy Center provides one-to-one tutoring and skill-building workshops in the Lapeer County area. In 2012, the Center tutored 548 adults in the thumb area. Sixty-two of them got their GEDs. We also run child tutoring programs in cooperation with local schools. We offer Playgroups, Kindergarten Readiness and hot-topic sessions throughout Lapeer County.
