Kevin Starr California Literacy Fund :: California State Library Foundation

Announcing the Kevin Starr California Literacy Fund

The Kevin Starr California Literacy Fund

California Library Literacy Services (CLLS) is a state-funded program that was first implemented in 1984 and is administered by the California State Library. Many of our CLLS programs want to either add a Family Literacy Service program to their existing services, or expand an existing program.  Your donation to the Kevin Starr California Literacy Fund will make this expansion possible and give the gift of literacy to Californians most in need.

More about the Programs:

The California Library Literacy Services Program (CLLS)
English-speaking adults who struggle with basic reading and writing skills are the primary target of CLLS. Adult Learners are provided one-on-one or small group instruction by trained volunteer tutors based on each individual’s pace and goals.  Services are provided confidentially in the non-threatening library environment – crucial qualities in supporting adults who may lack the time or skills to attend traditional classroom-based programs.

Family Literacy Services
Approximately one third of CLLS programs currently provide Family Literacy Services. These services offer CLLS adult learners with children under age 5 additional instruction  in reading, selecting age appropriate children’s books, and using activities to promote the enjoyment of reading.

These more focused efforts ensure that children of low literate adults are better prepared to start school, reducing the risk of having their own struggles with literacy. With the Family Literacy Services program, children of adult learners also receive books to build home libraries, because having books in the home is an important precursor to academic achievement.

You can donate to the Kevin Starr California Literacy Fund here using the Foundation’s secure payment vendor. See “Kevin Starr Literacy Fund” under “Donations.” Or, you can send your donation to:

California State Library Foundation
1225 Eighth Street, Suite 345
Sacramento, CA  95814

Or, call us at 916-447-6331 and we can take your donation over the phone, M-F 9:30 – 4:30.

Please note the names of all contributors will be given to the family and mentioned in a future issue of the Foundation Bulletin. If you would like to remain anonymous, please give us a call or send an email to admin@csfldn.org.

The California State Library Foundation is a nonprofit corporation under the Internal Revenue Service Code 501(c)(3).
