Adult Literacy Awareness Month

Adult Literacy Awareness Month
September Spotlight
on SCLLN Literacy Programs

National City Public Library

The WINGS After School Program is provided by the National City Public Library at each of the National School District’s ten elementary schools. National School District students in grades Kinder through 6th are invited to attend. The WINGS program provides a safe place for students to experience academic enrichment, homework help, and recreational activities during the hours when most parents work. Registration forms are available in each school's auditorium everyday after school.

The WOWmobile (Words on Wheels) Literacy Program is for families with children ages 0-5 years old. Books and materials for children and parents are available as well as crafts; games; puppet shows; stories; health referral services; and family literacy workshops.

Newport Beach Public Library Literacy Services

Provides free literacy instruction to adults who live or work in the Newport Beach area. Our dedicated volunteers have helped hundreds of people improve their English skills. In doing so, these volunteers have helped change lives. Literacy is a concern for everyone in our community as it affects not only the learner, but employers, healthcare providers, schools and more.

For many in our population, English is their second language. All second language learners benefit from learning better English skills. Job opportunities improve with English proficiency, children perform better in school if their parents are able to help them and healthcare providers can more easily care for their patient if they are proficient in English. NBPL Literacy Services is dedicated to achieving literacy for all members of our society. Literacy does change lives!
