Harvard Book Store

This event is free; no tickets are required.

The Gives Back program is a way for the Harvard Book Store to contribute to local organizations during the holidays. On each Sunday of the holiday season, a percentage of in-store and online sales will go to one of our selected charitable organizations.

The Literacy Project serves the learning needs of adults and their children.

Typical learners include:

  • immigrants who are non-native English speakers – who want to improve their spoken and written English
  • adults who want to prepare for the GED, TOEFL exam, citizenship exam, driver's license exam, and other civil service or professional licensing exams
  • adults who are in community colleges and need help with homework
  • adults who want to study computer basics (Word, Internet and Email)
  • children of these learners who need help with homework or need to improve their basic academic skills

The Literacy Project offers organized classes in English conversation, citizenship, job hunting/resume writing and computers.
