As of tomorrow morning, the long awaited NHLA Annual Business Meeting event will be just a short week away. So I thought I’d start giving you a little more information about some of the speakers you’ll be hearing from.
One of the speakers in the adult literacy programs session will be Elizabeth Sabol, Executive Director of the Learn To Read program at the Manchester City Library. Beth discovered her passion for adult literacy in 1990 when she became a volunteer tutor and then a tutor for the Adult Literacy Project, Palm Beach County Library System. In 2001 she joined the adult literacy program at the Manchester City Library as the program coordinator.
Under her leadership, the number of one-on-one matched, adult learner pairs, has grown over 300%. The program has achieved accreditation from ProLiteracy America and sustains a very active board of directors. Beth has developed innovative approaches to teaching lifelong learning skills as the foundation for literacy instruction.
In addition, Beth is an assistant vice president of leadership and professional development
at TD Bank University.
