On April 3, 2007, the Tulare County Board of Supervisors will announce at their 9am meeting that Saturday, April 7th is officially ADULT LITERACY DAY. We invite tutors and learners to join us at that meeting to represent adult literacy throughout Tulare County.

We invite you to support the Adult Literacy Day events by participating in our annual READ A THON 2007. This fundraiser will be held at TULARE COUNTY LIBRARY VISALIA BRANCH this year on Saturday, 7 April, 2007 from 10-2pm. We have two objectives in mind. First, we hope to continue to raise awareness among the general population that there are programs available to provide free one-on-one tutoring to assist adults to learn to read or read better. Second, this is a fundraiser as well as a “friend raiser” for our READ TO SUCCEED Program. We invite tutors, learners and community supporters to read for fifteen minutes from a chosen book. The reader will get sponsors to donate money for each minute he or she reads. Additionally, each reader will receive a FREE copy of the selected book.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR with these events and let us know which you plan to attend and support. We need your help to make these successful! Call us at 733-6445 with questions, suggestions or sign-ups.
