At Project Read, we love reading

About Project Read

Project Read provides one-on-one tutoring services to adults with low literacy skills in Utah County and changes lives through literacy by empowering individuals, strengthening families, and building community.

The goals of Project Read are met through the cooperation of community volunteers and other organizations that serve adults with low literacy skills.

One-On-One Tutoring

How Did We Begin?

Project Read began in 1984 through the efforts of the Provo and Orem City Libraries, the Provo City School District, and other concerned members of the community.

Where are we located?

We are located at the Provo City Library at Academy Square. However, tutoring can take place in any public location. Tutors and students regularly meet in the Provo, Orem, and Payson City Libraries along with other public places.

What languages are offered?

Project Read offers a program for adult students who want to improve their reading and writing skills in English. Students whose native language is not English must take a speaking/listening comprehension proficiency test to be admitted into the program.
