Reading gives us a place to go when we have to stay where we are...

Ascension Parish Library Adult Literacy Program (APLALP) provides literacy support, free of charge, to adults through a network of trained tutors. It is our vision to help adults improve their reading and writing skills to reach their potential as workers, parents, community members, and life-long learners.

Help adults change their lives through literacy.
