Corona Public Library Adult Literacy Program
Mar 30 2018
The Corona Public Library is proud to bring awareness to the global literacy needs, including those in our own community, and we are committed to providing resources to help make a positive change.
THE SHOCKING FACTS
According to ProLiteracy, every important social issue is impacted by low literacy.
• Children of parents with low literacy skills have a 72 percent chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves.
• Of adults with the lowest literacy levels, 43 percent live in poverty, and 70% of adult welfare recipients have low literacy levels.
• Every year, one in six young adults—more than 1.2 million—drop out of high school.
The library’s Adult Reading Assistance Program provides free tutoring for English-speaking adults in basic reading and writing skills. Students are matched one-to-one with volunteer. Do you know someone who can take advantage of this resource? Encourage them to sign up! Are you passionate about making a difference? Volunteer to teach!
