Adult learners are turning to Joplin NALA Read for literacy assistance in record numbers. Statistics gathered by the agency show that more students are being served than a year ago, and those students are staying longer. October was a record month at Joplin NALA Read. Our adult learners logged 869 hours – the most recorded in one month over the past ten years by double the monthly average.
