Literacy could be the ladder out of poverty. Morgan Freeman

Grand Opening

November 29, 2016
Taneytown Satellite Office

Literacy Council of Carroll County is pleased to answer the need of Taneytown to move the services of adult education to their community. So often adult learners because of work schedules or family responsiblities can not meet the time frames of scheduled classes. The Literacy Council offers one to one tutoring on a flexible schedule established by the student and tutor. Tutoring is open to any adult learner seeking to improve their reading, writing, speaking skills or their math skills. GED prep and ESOL study is also available.

Gene and Carol Pryor or Bob Sokolowski would be happy to explain more about the program.
They can be reached at
443-789-4534 Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 12:30
