A book discussion with learners and tutors will be Tuesday at 12 noon in the Altus Public Library.


Great Plains Literacy Council adult learners and tutors, along with some members of the Jackson County Retired Educators Association, will have a book discussion on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at noon in the literacy classroom at the Altus Public Library. Tutors and learners are welcome to attend even if the book had not been completed or started.

A new project called “Breakthrough To Books” provided copies of The Way It Works for tutors to read with literacy students to experience the joys of reading for enjoyment and entertainment.

As an incentive, Robert and Judy Hu provided fortune cookies for the weekly tutoring during the book readings. Certificates of completion will be awarded to all learners involved with “Breakthrough To Books.”

The Literacy Resource Office at the Oklahoma Department of Libraries provided the selected books funded through a federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
