Monrovia Library :: Community Feud Literacy Fundraiser :: Feb 26

Community Feud :: Monrovia Library
2017 Team Up! Dream Up! for Literacy Event
February 26  :: 1pm

A fun filled afternoon of team competition in a game show format with silent and live auctions! All proceeds benefit the Monrovia Public Library Literacy Services Program.


The annual Literacy Fundraiser helps raise thousands of dollars each year for programs designed to teach adults to read and to capture the imagination of our young readers.  Donations from previous fundraisers have been used to establish a Makerspace to build technology literacy skills, a curated collection of materials for adults learning how to read, America Learns software that supports literacy tutors with lesson plans and teaching strategies, as well as iPads and apps for those struggling with learning disabilities.

The Monrovia Public Library Literacy program was created to serve all ages. It builds early literacy skills with storytimes, Barks & Books for reluctant readers, and the Summer Reading Program that ensures children, teens, and adults keep reading over the summer months.  Teens, many of whom are active on our Teen Advisory Board, share their love of reading with younger kids at readers’ theaters performances throughout the year. For our adults, we offer one-on-one tutoring, Culture and Conversation classes, financial and health literacy workshops, GED prep, citizenship coaches, and job skills building both in-person and online.

The Literacy Program transforms lives by ensuring that everyone can experience the joys of reading and lifelong learning.

Glendora Library :: Great Trivia Challenge

Great Trivia Challenge 25
Glendora Library Literacy
February 25 :: 5 pm

Approximately 6000 adults living in the city of Glendora do not have the literacy skills required to independently manage daily activities at home and work. They are unable to achieve personal, educational, and professional goals.

It is highly likely that you know one of these adults with or without being aware of it. Adults with low literacy skills can be strategic at keeping this information hidden because it can be embarrassing, even shameful, to them. Many learn to compensate by listening effectively, observing carefully, memorizing efficiently, and devising ways to quietly depend upon others.

Ask Your Representative to Join the Adult Literacy Caucus :: NCL

Ask Your Representative to Join the Adult Literacy Caucus


The Adult Literacy Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives has been re-certified for the 115th Congress. Rep. Phil Roe (R-TN) will continue as caucus sponsor and Republican co-chair. Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) has agreed to serve as Democratic co-chair, taking the place of Rep. RubĂ©n Hinojosa, who retired last year. Two weeks ago, the offices of Rep. Roe and Rep. Yarmuth distributed a “Dear Colleague” letter, inviting all members of the House to join the Caucus.

The current members of the Caucus are listed here. If your representative is not on the list, we hope you’ll consider asking them to join. (Feel free to reference the Dear Colleague letter when contacting them.)  Be prepared with a concise message that includes your name, your address (to show you’re a constituent), contact information, and what you are calling/writing about (joining the Adult Literacy Caucus).

Orange Public Library :: Volunteer Literacy Tutors Needed

Volunteer Literacy Tutors Needed
City of Orange: 2.07.2017

Did you know the library has a new adult literacy program? We are recruiting volunteers to be tutors, and if you are reading this, you just might be one of them.

Last year, library literacy programs in Southern California helped thousands of adults improve reading and writing skills. 

In 2016, we received funds from the California State Library, North Orange Rotary Club, City of Orange Public Library Foundation, Friends of the Orange Public Library, and the Community Foundation of Orange, to establish an adult literacy program in the City of Orange.

Our program is available to English-speaking adults.  Those who cannot speak and understand English are referred to local programs to learn conversation first, then they may enroll in our reading and writing program.

A person seeking help with reading is given an assessment and then matched with a volunteer tutor.  Materials are provided for each tutor-student pair.

Additional books, worksheets, and computer-aided instruction are provided through the Literacy Office.

Tutor Training Class
March 28: 1pm – 4pm
Also: Mar 30; Apr 4, 6
