ABSTRACT
Newly—literate adults soon lose their newly-acquired reading and writing
skills if they are not in constant touch with reading materials, and are not given opportunities to practise their writing skills. In Nigeria,- there is a dearth of reading materials for newly literate adults, and producing books appropriate to their reading ability is not only an expensive undertaking but also commercially unviable at present. This paper focuses on meeting the post—literacy materials needs of neo—literate adults through the provision of the community bulletin board and the community newsletter. These materials can be cheaply produced and effectively used to ensure that neo-literate adults especially in rural communities are not only
regularly presented with reading materials, but are also given opportunities to practise their writing skills.
