Was können Bibliotheken tun?

[…] All too often, tutoring materials fail to recognize and reinforce that adult learners are intelligent and capable. Finding appropriate materials -that are interesting and mature in content yet use simple language – presents a major challenge to tutors. Librarians can play a pivotal role in helping adult learners meet this challenge by encouraging libraries to acquire such materials and by assisting students and tutors in locating these materials.
[…] Solving the illiteracy problem is a critical step toward addressing other societal problems, and libraries can be an invaluable resource in the solution.

Senator Paul Simon, (Foreword to: Marguerite Crowley Weibel (1992) / The Library as Literacy Classroom)
