Our CALL program (Computer Assisted Literacy in Libraries), will host a Coffee Chat at 10 a.m. on Monday, February 27, 2012, at the West Las Vegas Library to introduce local residents to Project EASE (Educational Assistance to Support Employability).
Potential students will have the opportunity to ask questions, review the teaching materials, meet other students, as well as the people who will help them accomplish their educational or employment goals.
The program is designed to help people get back to work and gain the educational and employment skills necessary to make them marketable in today’s challenging economy. Project EASE is designed to improve basic skills in reading, writing and computer use through an instructor, tutors and a host of computer-based programs. The classes are free of charge.
Literacy Manager Connie Barker remarked, “We are excited about our third phase of the EASE project. It has helped a number of Las Vegas residents improve their math, reading, writing, job and computers skills.”
The program is an eight-week session, four days a week, Monday through Friday. Classes will be held at the West Las Vegas Library, beginning Monday, March 5 through Thursday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Space is limited for both the Coffee Chat and the class. For more information or to register, call 507-3530.
