Dear Library Supporter

As we prepare to turn the calendar page to a new year, we wish you the best this holiday season and we want to express our appreciation for your support in 2015 and beyond. Together we have made a difference in the lives of thousands of families in our communities.

It is also the time when we turn to you to ask again for your support as we build and strengthen these programs that aim to raise the literacy level of our citizens and their children:

REACH OUT & READ: Working with local healthcare providers, children beginning at six months of age received a book when they visited their primary care doctor. Many physicians take time to read to their young patients.  Since its inception, Reach Out & Read has put more than 213,000 books in the hands of children.

TUTOR.COM: This online resource connects local students live with tutors in all major areas of studies, from math to science and language arts. In 2015, students joined in more than 10,000 one-on-one online sessions for help with their homework.

ADULT LITERACY: This year 268 volunteer tutors are helping individuals improve their language and writing skills through this program, helping them acquire better jobs and become more involved in their communities.

These programs have proven track records, helping participants improve their reading and writing skills, getting early exposure to books and the art of the written word and concentrating on school work and excelling in their studies.

Any assistance you are able to afford us this holiday season will go to not only sustaining these programs, but building upon them and extending our outreach in your community.
