Proceeds go to Local Libraries
EL CENTRO – LEARN IV (Libraries Empower All to Read Now – Imperial Valley) is asking local residents to save the date of Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 for the first ever library literacy “Trivia Bee” and celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the California Library Literacy Services Network. The Trivia Bee will be held in the early evening of the 2nd at the Imperial Fairgrounds. More details will be forthcoming closer to the date.
LEARN IV is the coalition of library literacy programs, offered at every public library in the Imperial Valley. The libraries are members of the California Library Literacy Services (CLLS) program, receiving funding in part from the State of California, through the California State Library. The program was founded in 1984, and Imperial County was one of the original library literacy programs. It has been in continuous existence since then.
Through the CLLS, your local libraries offer free, confidential tutoring for adults, 16 and older and not in school, who wish to read and write better in English. Many of the libraries also offer some English as a Second Language services to their residents as well. For more information on the program, or to receive information on volunteering to be a tutor in this special anniversary year, please contact your local library literacy coordinator: Norma Gerardo at Camarena Memorial, 768-2170; Rocio Medina at Brawley Public Library, 344-1891; or for the other systems, Monica Reyes at Imperial Public, 355-1332.
