The Baraboo Area Literacy Council (BALC) was established in 1986 to address literacy needs in Baraboo and the surrounding communities. The organization is volunteer and non-profit.
BALC provides tutors for adults who need help with basic literacy (reading and writing), or English as a second language (ESL). Tutors and students meet on a one-to-one basis, in a safe place, at their mutual convenience. The service is free and continuous. BALC tutors are trained volunteers who have agreed to a background check.
The BALC welcomes community support and is always looking for new members. The BALC – its board, its tutor coordinator and all tutors – is made up entirely of volunteers. If interested in joining the BALC, either as a tutor or as a board member, please leave your name and contact information, including email if available, at the circulation desk of the Baraboo Public Library or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t have time or interest in participating actively in the BALC program, monetary contributions are welcome and needed. Since we are a non-profit group your donation would be tax-deductible. Checks may be made out to BALC and left at the desk of the Baraboo Public Library.
