We do not offer classes however we do have some resources you might find very helpful.
First of all, we have books called "New Readers" that provide adult-level content in basic vocabulary. You can find New Reader books by going to a library and asking to browse the collection. Unfortunately, there's not a way to search only for New Readers in the online catalog at this time.
There are several community groups that are active in improving adult literacy
Below I've listed several groups that should be able to support your friend's literacy needs:
