Corona Library Readers=Leaders :: Adult Literacy Giving Day

September 18

Readers = Leaders: Adult Literacy Giving Day is one week from today! Imagine the fear of not being able to Get a Job, Read Medical Labels, Vote, or Help Children with Homework.

Support The Corona Public Library Foundation and help English-speaking adults who need to improve their lives through better reading & writing skills.

Please share and spread the word!
Watch throughout the week for facts about adult literacy right here in Corona and Western Riverside County.

Join in giving to Corona Public Library Foundation's campaign Help New Adult Readers Become New Leaders!

Imagine not being able to read street signs: That generally means no driver's license. Or what about being in an accident and coming out of a coma to find you can no longer read. These are just two examples of real situations facing adult learners in the Corona Public Library's Adult Reading Assistance Program.

Every day, staff & volunteers work with adults trying to improve their lives while facing the huge hurdle of limited reading and writing abilities. Your contribution will help provide new resources for the learners and their tutors, including workshops, tutor training, computer software for literacy and much more.

With your help, we can change someone's life: "Eloise" took the written driving test, only missed passing by one and will be taking it again very soon, while "Dennis" is now reading at a sixth grade level and negotiating with two companies for the best job offer. Don't hesitate: Please give now!
