Adult Literacy Day Proclaimed, April 22

April 22, 2014                                    

The Tulare County Board of Supervisors designated today as Adult Literacy Day at its weekly board meeting.

County Librarian Jeff Scott, Program Manager Sue Gillison and Tulare Coordinator Kim Torrez came before the board and audience to outline the activities of the Literacy program. Ms. Gillison introduced Veronica Serrano and Mrs. Torrez presented Kalash Rana as outstanding examples of achievement in literacy.

Board Chairman Phil Cox asked the program administrators, tutors and learners to join him in front of the audience as he made the proclamation presentation. Chairman Cox noted that *What these learners, Veronica and Kalash, have told us is what we need to hear about the importance of our literacy program."

The Tulare County Library Read to Succeed literacy program offers free literacy services to any adult county resident. The tutors are all volunteers who give their services to the community. For more information, call 713-2745.
