Literacy Volunteers of Chemung and Schuyler Counties—Media Coverage

"Our biggest challenge is getting those folks who can't read to get it off their hearts---because nobody wants to admit to a weakness," said Program Coordinator for Literacy Volunteers of Chemung and Schuyler Counties Bryon Swartout in a recent media interview.

"No one wants to admit to another adult that they can't do something as "basic" as reading. So one thing I would say to anyone watching this story don't let that bother you we are not here to judge, we are here to help you get over that particular barrier." Swartout encourages those who need help to contact him via the Literacy Volunteers website.

Literacy Volunteers of Chemung and Schuyler Counties is also encouraging a program they call Pick Up a Book and Read. They want everyone to set aside 15 minutes every day to read anything, a comic book, the newspaper, a novel, as it can help your memory, thinking skills and much more.
