LITERACY

 

Adult Literacy Program

One in four adults in San Joaquin County lacks basic literacy skills. Through one-on-one tutoring done by volunteers from the community, the Adult Literacy Program's goals are to promote and maintain the basic literacy skills of English-speaking adults. Adult learners set their own goals so that they may participate more fully in society as parents and family members, as workers, and as community members and citizens. This program is funded largely by a California Library Literacy Services grant. To find out about becoming a tutor or a learner in the Adult Literacy Program, call (209) 937-7778.

This program is funded largely by a California Library Literacy Services grant. To schedule a Training Wheels visit to your preschool or daycare, call (209) 937-8143.
