Colusa County Literacy Program Celebrates 30th Anniversary

The Colusa County Literacy Council is celebrating its 30 years of service with a multi-branch book giveaway, starting August 31.

“I feel it’s important to not only revel in the fact that the Literacy Program has existed for 30 years, but that over 1,000 adult learners in our County have been positively impacted by its presence since 1986,” said Literacy Coordinator Alissa Morrow.

The Colusa County Literacy Program, a volunteer, non-profit organization, was developed in 1986 to assist individuals aged 16 or older in improving their basic reading and writing skills in English. The curriculum matches individuals with a trained volunteer tutor where customized lessons are provided in a one-one setting. Tutors and students will meet at their local library once or twice a week for lessons.

Individuals seeking to enroll in the tutoring program or who would like to become a tutor can contact Morrow at (530) 458-0373.

With California celebrating Adult Literacy Awareness Month in September, the Colusa County Literacy Program will distribute free books at each of the six local library branches.

To get free books for you or your child, stop your local library from 3 PM to 5 PM:

  • Princeton – August 31
  • Colusa – September 1
  • Arbuckle – September 7
  • Grimes – September 15
  • Williams – September 22
  • Maxwell – September 29

For information about the Adult Literacy Program, or to make tax-deductible donation, contact Morrow at (530) 458-0373 or email amorrow@countyofcolusa.org
