SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – South Suburban College’s Adult Volunteer Literacy Program is hosting their annual Family Reading Night event on Tuesday, November 14th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the SSC Performing Arts Center Lobby.

The event will feature an activity table full of arts and crafts for the little ones to enjoy and a story time puppet show by Puppet Master Eric Stiles. The wonderful Storyteller Patrick Nevins will be here with some delightful stories to share. We are also pleased to announce that Mr. Joseph Whittington Jr., who has served as a member of the SSC Board of Trustees since 2005 and serves as Chairman of the Board’s Audit Committee, will also be in attendance. We are pleased to be having this event again; the activities and speakers are something you will NOT want to miss!

Illiteracy is an issue that can be debilitating in so many ways for adults and children who never received the proper instruction. Adults who are unable to read have a much more difficult time with many daily activities that others may take for granted, along with a clear disadvantage in today’s competitive job market. SSC’s Adult Education Department administers the Adult Volunteer Literacy Tutoring Program in addition to High School Equivalency (HSE/GED), English as a Second Language (ESL), and Adult Basic Education (ABE).
