I-READ moving sale set


The Adult Education Department will have a Two-Eventsin-

One Sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20 in the

cafeteria foyer:

Before moving into the Peter Miller Community Technology

Center, the I-READ Adult Literacy Program is having a moving

sale. The miscellaneous items include picture frames, books,

clocks, candleholders, flag pins and book pins.

The second event, held simultaneously, is a gently-used holiday

items sale. These miscellaneous items, including Thanksgiving

and Christmas decorations, have been donated by IVCC

staff members.

None of the items will be priced, but each will be available

for a monetary donation. Proceeds from these two events will

go to the I-READ program and the Support Staff Service Project,

which will help Adult Ed students pay for the GED test,

which is changing Jan. 2, 2014, and increasing in cost from $50

to $120.

The I-READ program serves adult learners who test below

the ninth grade level in reading or math or who are beginningto

intermediate-level English language learners. These learners

are tutored by volunteers who receive 15 hours of training before

being placed with a learner or in one of our Adult Education

classes throughout the IVCC District.

The I-READ program is made possible by a grant awarded

by the Illinois State Library, a division of the Office of Secretary

of State, using funds designated for literacy.
