Literacy Lab

(** NOTE: Due to COVID-19, our labs have been canceled. We’re hoping to start up labs again in June, dependent upon library availability. Because of the library’s new operating hours, we will temporarily move our evening lab up to 5:30 pm.)

Literacy Lab Hours:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: 1-2:30 pm and 5:30-7 pm

The Project Read Literacy Lab is a group instruction experience designed to help students improve their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills and fulfill their six-hour weekly commitment. During the first hour of lab, the literacy specialist teaches a short lesson to the entire group. The last half hour of lab is used for one-on-one time where students work with the literacy specialist or lab volunteers on individual projects and assignments.


Student orientations are done individually. Please call or email the office to schedule a student orientation.

Volunteer orientations are held on the 2nd Wednesday and 4th Thursday at 5 pm in the Project Read office. We can also schedule an individual orientation upon request. Volunteer orientation can also be done online here.

Premiere Tour

The Project Read Premiere Tour is a one-hour event that allows you to learn a little more about Project Read and the impact it is having right here in our community.   Guests will be welcomed by a board member, hear a message from our Executive Director, tour our Literacy Lab, and listen to a student share their experience. We can’t answer all of your questions in one-hour but hope this overview will prompt further discussion if you want to learn more. Please consider scheduling a Premiere Tour for your book club, church group or civic club. To schedule a tour contact Aleah Spencer, Project Read Program Coordinator ( or 801-448-READ).

Annual Student Recognition

(**NOTE: Due to COVID-19, our 2020 Annual Recognition Event is canceled. Stayed tuned for a special recognition alternative this year to celebrate our amazing students and volunteers.)

In June, Project Read hosts an Annual Recognition Event to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and honor the dedication of their volunteer tutors.  The event includes graduation ceremonies for students completing their study at Project Read and recognition of the winners of Project Read’s annual writing competition. The event also provides a venue for the writing contest winners to share their work.
