Riverside County Library System Adult Literacy Program
Riverside County Library System Adult Literacy Program provides adult literacy services to our communities through one-on-one literacy tutoring, English-as-a-Second-Language classes and family literacy events.
The program is supported by funding from the California State Library Literacy Services, the California State Department of Education, private organizations and businesses in our communities, Riverside County and through the generous support of our many volunteers throughout the County.
The goal of the Families for Literacy programs is to introduce the adult learner and his/her family to the value and joy of reading as a family.
The underlying concept of these programs is that children who are talked to and read to by adults learn to read better and as a result break the cycle of illiteracy.
