Your East Central Arkansas Regional Library is proud to support adult education efforts in our region. We work closely with regional Literacy Councils, the Cross County Adult Education Program, and the Arkansas State University-Newport Adult Education Program to provide space, resources, and other support to ensure that area residents have access to educational opportunities.

Each county’s Literacy Council provides free tutoring services to Arkansas residents, age 18 and older, with low literacy skills. Students are tutored one-on-one or in small groups by volunteer tutors who have been trained in proven methods for working with adult low readers and the English as a Second Language program.
