Become a Learner

Want to pass the GED? Have trouble reading? Change your life now!

If you:

  • reside in Lafayette County
  • are 18 years or older
  • don’t attend school
  • want to get your GED or need help reading

The Lafayette County Literacy Council’s ABLE program can help!

(If you do not meet this criteria, call us — we can point you to other programs in the community that can better meet your needs.)

Follow these steps to become an ABLE Learner:

1. Call 662-234-4234 for more information about the ABLE program. We will provide information about learner time commitments and answer any questions you may have.

2. Attend a welcome interview in the Jean Holley room upstairs at the Lafayette County and Oxford Public Library. Welcome interviews are held on the first Saturday of every month, 10am-1pm, and the third Monday of every month, 4pm-7pm. Bring proof of Lafayette County residency (a document with your name and address on it — like a utility or cable bill). There is a one-time $15 registration fee. This welcome interview helps the program coordinator decide what materials will be used to help you reach your goals. You will receive an orientation at the welcome interview.
