Literacy Center Gets Early Gift

The Wells Fargo Foundation ensured holiday happiness for the Tulare County Library Literacy Center with a donation of $1250 to the program.

In receiving the funds, Sue Gillison, Literacy Program Manager, said, “Our tutors and learners depend on us to provide at no cost the materials they need for study. The budget constraints on our program have been a major concern for all literacy programs in California. Our Tulare County Library Literacy program is very fortunate to have this Wells Fargo Foundation Community Partners grant to aid our local literacy efforts. Wells Fargo truly gives back to its community.”

The Library Literacy Center has been serving the residents of Tulare County for over ten years. With a 41 percent illiteracy rate in the county, its services are vitally needed to make the Central Valley competitive in today’s economy.
