Literacy Anniversary Year Celebration



Literacy Anniversary Year Celebration-100/30/20

International Literacy Day


This event is happening at the County Administration Center.

Program speakers: State Librarian, Adult Learners and Volunteer Tutors



In honor of International Literacy Day, Solano County Library will host a program featuring Greg Lucas, the California State Librarian on Sept 8.  Lucas will speak about his work with the State Library and the campaign to eliminate adult illiteracy in California. Also on hand to share their stories will be a student and a volunteer tutor who are involved in the Library’s literacy program.


“The primary focus of the event and indeed, the entire month of September, is to build awareness of the impact of low literacy skills on adults in the community and the effect on the entire family,” said Joanne Wright, the Library’s literacy services program manager.


The program will begin at 9 a.m. at the Solano County Administration Center, 675 Texas Street, in Fairfield, CA.  Throughout the day, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Library’s literacy services will be showcased in an interactive display in the lobby. Adult learners, volunteers and staff will be on hand to talk about the work of the program and to increase awareness of adult literacy issues in our community.  “Currently 141 adults who want to learn to read better are on a waiting list for a tutor. We know from our volunteers that this is one of the most rewarding ways to give your time. We call it ‘giving the gift of reading,” said Wright.
