On Friday, March 2 Lima Public Library unveiled its new collection of materials for adults who struggle with literacy, as do more than 36 million Americans. We are pleased to support the Lima Literacy Council in their goal “to enable adults . . . to set and achieve their personal goals through improved literacy skills. The library’s new Adult Literacy collection is made up of more than 130 items, including both fiction and non-fiction titles. Lima Public Library strives to be our community’s go-to location for life-long learning and it is our pleasure to support the Lima Literacy Council and their clients.
Additionally, beginning Tuesday, April 3 the West Central Ohio Aspire program through Lima City Schools will begin hosting ABLE/GED classes at Lima Public Library. Aspire is a program that offers free classes to adult learners who would like to acquire a high school equivalency degree. The Aspire program also provides services for those who would like to refresh their skills in preparation for college coursework and for those who need career pathway assistance. As a life-long learning center, Lima Public Library feels that this natural partnership will be tremendously beneficial to our community.
For additional information about the free services offered at the Lima Adult Learning Center (563 W. Spring St.) please visit their website www.limaliteracy.net, or call 419-223-0252.
