National Reading Month

I hope you are enjoying a good book this National Reading Month. My most recent reading pleasure has been Agent Josephine by Damien Lewis, about the courageous work of glamorous superstar Josephine Baker as a spy during World War II. Reading has always been one of my favorite pastimes. It inspired me to sign up to volunteer with the Literacy Council in 2017.

Of course, the AACLC does much more than teach reading. We also offer ESL, math, diploma, ASVAB preparation tutoring, and more. There is a great need for these services in our county. Read this month’s newsletter for news on local support for our services and statistics on adult literacy.

Why did you and your student get involved with the Literacy Council? What books or stories are you reading? We would love to know!

Many thanks,


P.S. We update this list of community resources as we get new information: Community Resources 2023
