• Reach Out and Read, our pediatric literacy program has handed out over 219,000 books in Solano County to children 6 months to 5 years of age. Pediatricians discuss the importance of reading to children and at each well child checkup the child receives a new age appropriate book. In some of the eleven health clinics served, this is the child's first book. Research has proven that children who participate in Reach Out and Read are three to six months ahead when they enter school.
• Tutor.com, on line homework help that reduces the dropout rate of high school students and gives resume help to adults entering the workplace.
• Adult Literacy and English as a second language provides tutors to adults learning to read. Learning to read improves the quality of life and the hope for a better future.
• Solano Kids Read, brings the joy of reading and sharing books to students in grades 4 - 8. Free books are distributed to participating classes, the children discuss the book and meet the author. Each child has the opportunity to have their own book signed by the author.
Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope and you are helping build that bridge in Solano County with the help of our Solano County Library's Literacy Programs. Together we are making a difference.
