The Greene County Literacy Coalition is excited to be fostering a Language Learning Community in an effort to continue to promote literacy as well as personal and community growth in our county. We will host Language Learning sessions beginning on July 13th on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00pm. The Tuesday evening sessions will occur at the Bloomfield-Eastern Greene County Public Library Annex Building at 87 E. Spring St. in Bloomfield, Indiana. Additionally, the Wednesday evening session will occur at the Linton Public Library in the Program Room at 95 S. E. 1st St in Linton, Indiana.
We are aiming to have our Language Learning Sessions composed of approximately 50% native Spanish and 50% native English language speakers with a goal of having 30 total participants at each location. Lessons for these sessions will encourage learners to practice reading, writing, listening, and speaking in both the English and Spanish language. A dynamic learning environment during each Language Learning Community session will allow learners the opportunity to be challenged and embrace working towards accomplishing set group and personal goals.
Please feel free to contact us at (812) 384-4125 ext. 4 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with you questions. Otherwise, we are looking forward to having you join our Language Learning Community!
As the holiday season is upon us our Greene County Literacy Coalition is delivering new giftwrapped books to the Little Free Libraries in our county. “This year has been quite challenging. However, we are always looking for ways to continue promoting literacy in our community and this book gifting is an opportunity to do so as well as to bring a little more joy, a little more connection, and a whole lot more books to our community,” says Armonda Riggs, Greene County Literacy Coalition Coordinator.
We hope that you venture out to one our county’s Little Free Libraries to pick up a book gift and celebrate the gift of reading.

Also, in other news from our Greene County Literacy Coalition, on Saturday November 7th we dedicated our county’s newest Little Free Library location at the Lyons Town Hall/Community Building at 600 W Broad St, Lyons, IN 47443. The Lyons Little Free Library was made possible by the town of Lyons, Roger Doane, builder Ben Riggs, the Greene County Foundation, Greene County Literacy Coalition, Bloomfield Eastern Greene Library, and Bloomfield Friends of the Library.
Additionally, because of his pursuance in making sure this community had a Little Free Library and his commitment to the cause for literacy in our county we have dedicated the Lyons Little Free Library in the memory of Roger Doane.
