Lord Baltimore Lions Support Adult Literacy Program at Frankford Library

Members of the Lord Baltimore Lions Club led by Lion President Janet Bauer made a recent visit to the Frankford Library. The purpose of the visit was to extend congratulations and appreciation to Library Director Rachel Wackett, her staff members and the volunteer tutors who have contributed so much to the growth and success of the Adult Literacy Program at the Frankford Public Library.

According to Library Director Rachel Wackett, the Lions contribution will be used toward the purchase of Smart Readers and some needed supplies. Ms. Wackett says that “the Smart Readers are an excellent resource for adult learners as both the written and the spoken word is incorporated for greater fluency and retention.”

The Adult Literacy Program at the Frankford Library serves adults born both in the United States and also  learners from many other countries like  Mexico, Central America, China, Turkey and Laos. Ms. Wackett confirmed that in November 2018, the Frankford Public Library hosted (13) two-hour sessions that served 32 learners.

The Lord Baltimore Lions Club first  learned about this program three years ago after assisting a woman in need of an eye examination and eyeglasses. It turned out that the woman was a student in the Adult Literacy program at The Frankford Library.

For information on the Adult Literacy Program, please contact Liz Berntzen at the Frankford Public Library at 302-732 9351.
