You will love meeting Felita and her tutor Pat Baker in our September newsletter (If you’re not on our newsletter list, put your email in the box in the left sidebar).

Felita came to the Literacy Council eleven months ago to improve her reading and writing skills as she works towards her goal of owning her own furniture-making business. As Felita noted in the post about her, “To better myself is to better my family.” Felita’s tutor Pat Baker shares what initially drew her to the Literacy Council to volunteer and how tutoring Felita has impacted her life.

If you have a passion for reading or math and want to make a positive difference in another person’s life and in your community, please contact AACLC by calling 410-269-4419 or emailing and be trained as a volunteer tutor. Information on our October 5th tutor training opportunity is shared below.

Please also join us on October 19th for AACLC’s 4th Annual Family Literacy 5K Walk-a-Thon! There will be a DJ, free face painting for kids, and Clifford the Dog will be giving out treats and prizes for all kids and dogs participating in the walkathon. There will also be free snacks and drinks for everyone attending. This will be a great way for families to start the school year by celebrating family literacy together! You won’t want to miss it. More details of this fun family event are HERE.

Warm regards,

Lisa Vernon, Executive Director
Anne Arundel County Literacy Council
