Celebrate Writing 2015 Request for Entries 

Each year students are given the opportunity to be published in a book of student writings. Tutors and their student(s) will each receive a copy at Celebration of the Stars that will be held May 19, 2015. Students are encouraged to participate!
 
“What Are You Reading?” is the theme for this year’s book. It provides students with an opportunity to have their photo taken holding one of their favorite books, magazines or newspapers. Then they answer a few questions: What is the book about? Why did you pick this book? How does it relate to you? Why is reading important to you? Please continue reading for more information.

Spanish Speakers Phone Line and Poster

Spanish speakers are the fastest growing immigrant population in the Chippewa Valley. Our latest outreach efforts have dedicated a Spanish phone line at LVCV and displayed new posters in Mexican restaurants and grocery stores in Eau Claire. If you know a Spanish speaking adult who wants to learn or improve English, offer our Spanish line (715-456-3155) and a Spanish speaker will return calls promptly. You may also direct them to our Facebook page.
