Today, children in under-served or low income areas often do not have easy access to books – especially during the summer months putting them at an immediate academic disadvantage.
One in six adults in Santa Clara County cannot read well enough to fill out a job application or read the instructions on a bottle of medicine.
The Santa Clara County Library District Foundation was established to address these situations. It boosts financial support to library programs which provide free services to the under-served populations in our area.
Together we can have a great impact toward increasing literacy and lifelong learning in Santa Clara County!
