9. Literacy New Jersey

The Mercer County Library System supports the mission of Literacy New Jersey, Mercer County Chapter, which is coordinated by Literacy New Jersey. Tutors and students of the Mercer County chapter of Literacy New Jersey who live outside of our borrowing area may apply for a complimentary library card because of their participation in the Mercer County Literacy New Jersey Program. Staff will issue a Literacy Volunteer card, which is renewable annually, upon student or tutor verification of current participation in the Mercer County Literacy New Jersey Program. If staff suspects abuse of the privilege or there are significant fines or fees associated with the borrowing of materials, the library will seek resolution with the Literacy New Jersey Coordinator and may suspend library privileges to particular individuals. Literacy New Jersey tutors working with students may use a library copier free of charge exclusively to reproduce study materials. This privilege is not extended to any other persons, groups, or organizations using the library, regardless of whether they are involved in tutoring or other educational services. Literacy New Jersey tutors must contact the Branch Manager or their designee to reserve the community room for tutoring sessions. Literacy New Jersey tutors and students are responsible for contacting each other directly regarding appointments or cancellation of a session.
