Reading Center

Books in the Learning Place

The Reading Center is designed to help students improve reading comprehension, build their vocabulary and increase reading speed. Students may need to use this resource if their placement score reveals a need for improvement, they were referred by an instructor, or they decided to get additional support on their own.
