Madison County Read Ahead
Madison County Read Ahead - begun with a founding grant from the Central New York Community Foundation in February 2006 - provides free adult literacy tutoring programs in public libraries located throughout Madison County. Volunteer tutors are trained and matched with learners at local libraries, and work one-on-one at flexible hours that suit their schedules.

Read Ahead in Cazenovia
Sponsored by Cazenovia Public Library, we offer free adult literacy programs on site, as well as tutoring services at two satellite locations, CazCares Food Pantry and the New Woodstock Public Library. Volunteer tutors work with adult learners in three different programs: adult basic education (Learn to Read), ESL (English as a Second Language), or preparation for the GED Examination (high school equivalency certification).
