Adult literacy efforts in need of volunteers

By From page A3 | August 23, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Solano County Library’s Literacy Services is in need of volunteers for its Adult Literacy Program.

Some 20 percent of Solano County’s population is considered functionally illiterate – 64,993 adults and their households, according to a press release from the library. Children with parents who struggle with reading and writing skills are much more likely to struggle in school, the release said.

Solano County Library Literacy Services will conduct volunteer tutor orientation Sept. 13 and Sept. 17.
