On Tuesday, September 9th, the Mayor and City Council of Carlsbad presented a Proclamation to Heather Pizutto and Carrie Scott, recognizing September as Adult Literacy Awareness month in honor of the 30th anniversary of the California Library Literacy Services and our program. Nyla, a learner in Literacy Services, also spoke about her experience.

The Proclamation reads:
Whereas, the City of Carlsbad recognizes the need for educated and informed residents to meet the challenges of an increasingly technological society; and

Whereas, Carlsbad City Library Literacy Services is a proud member of the California Library Literacy Services program, and both are celebrating 30 years of changing lives for the better; and

Whereas, Literacy Services provides opportunities for adults to improve their reading, writing and computer skills to meet their life goals; and

Whereas, volunteers generously and patiently donate over 11,000 hours annually to help adults improve their skills; and

Whereas, adult learners enrolled in the Literacy Services program contribute to Carlsbad becoming a world-class city by improving their job skills, reading to their children and voting.

Now, Therefore, I, Matt Hall, Mayor of the City of Carlsbad, on behalf of the City Council, do hereby join the State of California in proclaiming the month of September 2014 as Adult Literacy Awareness Month in the City of Carlsbad and commend and congratulate all of our volunteers, learners and supporters who promote literacy in our community.
