Adult Literacy Awareness Month
September Spotlight
on SCLLN Literacy Programs

County of Los Angeles Public Library
Literacy Centers

Our mission is to assist individuals with reading and writing improvement and to teach adults and families to utilize the public library as a resource for lifelong learning.

The County of Los Angeles Public Library offers free adult and family literacy instruction at Literacy Centers & Community Libraries convenient to tutors and learners. The program became part of the California Literacy Campaign in 1984 through an initiative of the California State Library. Since 1984, the Library has expanded literacy services to meet the needs of adults and families wanting to improve their reading and writing skills. (562) 940-8511

Covina Public Library - Second Start Literacy Program

A library-based literacy service with a mission of assisting English-speaking adults and children who wish to improve basic literacy skills. Trained volunteers and staff strive to create a learning environment that promotes self-esteem and helps adult learners to participate more effectively and productively in society. Lessons are individualized, confidential, and highly-goal oriented. Tutors structure the learning process around the goals of the learner, using materials that relate to those goals. The service is provided free of charge and on a one-to-one basis. For more information: (626) 384-5280
