Joe Moore – What the Library Means to Me


Story courtesy of Largo Library’s publication, Bookmark

Every Tuesday for many years Joe Moore arrives at Largo Library to meet his reading tutor, Dawn Chisholm.? Dawn is a volunteer with the Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas.? Joe’s initial goal was to learn to read well enough to share story books with Madison,
his great niece.

As a result of using the library study rooms, Joe expanded his goals to include learning how to use library resources, and how to find and auto-check out books of interest to challenge his vocabulary and imagination.? Joe says “doing my tutoring at Largo Library is inspiring, everyone is here to read books or use the computer.? The staff in every department is always friendly and helpful.”




‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

The Dunedin Library Conversation Class performed a play based on the poem, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, written by Clement C. Moore, on December 21.? The actors were Gladys, Dorotea, Steffani, Marta, Maria and Bruce; other students and tutors were in the audience.? Students and tutors brought food to share, and everyone enjoyed the evening very much.
