Volunteer Organization Celebrates Student Literacy

PLAINFIELD—Literacy Volunteers of Union County will celebrate the rollout of the first edition of a student art and literary magazine on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at the Plainfield Public Library located at 800 Park Avenue, Plainfield.

Literacy Volunteers is a non-profit organization that improves the lives of adults in Union County by teaching them to read, write and speak English so they can participate more fully in family, workplace and community life.


Adult learners in the program were encouraged to submit a story, poem, photograph or artwork for consideration in a literary publication of student work.  After careful review, a committee of Literacy Volunteers tutors selected the work of 32 students for inclusion in the magazine.  Student artwork was selected for both the front and back cover and is also included in the body of the magazine.

Tutors, students, families, friends and sponsors of the project will take part in the rollout festivities as students are presented with a copy of the Student Art and Literary Magazine and read selections from the magazine.
