This study looked at experiences of people whose literacy use and literacy skills had undergone transition as adults when they decided to learn to read or to improve their reading in library-based adult and family literacy programs. The work comes out of a longitudinal interview study in which adult literacy learners in California public library programs and their volunteer tutors were interviewed once every year over a three year period.
