Thank you.

How long will TLC be closed/when will TLC open again?

We anticipate resuming classes the week of April 6th.

Is TLC still having night classes?

No. For the health, safety, and well-being of our staff and the people we serve we are taking steps to limit the risk of exposure, and we are suspending all classes until the week of April 6th.

Can I go to a library with my tutor?

Most libraries are currently closed. The CDC is advising no close contact with people who are infected or show symptoms. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person and between people who are in close contact with one another. Persons over 60 or those with compromised immune systems may have harsher reactions to the virus. If you and your tutor want to meet, we cannot tell you not to meet, but it does conflict with social distancing best practices.

Is TLC having Orientation in April and what about April training?

We plan to maintain our April schedule. If this changes information will be posted here and on our Facebook page and the tutor section of our website.

For the health, safety, and well-being of our staff and the people we serve we are taking steps to limit the risk of exposure and will not be receiving books until April 6th. If this changes information will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
