Welcome to the Family Literacy Center!
Since 1980, the Family Literacy Center has provided free, one-to-one tutoring for adults who live to or work in the Lapeer County area and want to read, write or speak English better. We also offer several workshops for families to help children develop good reading skills. We are now offering tutoring for children in the Lapeer County area in targeted school groups. This program has been made possible through a grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The Family Literacy Center and the Lapeer District Library are partners for literacy in Lapeer County.
