November is Family Literacy Month

The Santa Clara City Library Foundation & Friends funds family literacy programs through grants and donations. This is a short update from our literacy coordinator about what’s going on this month!

We can be proud of all that we do to help families discover the joy of reading. Here are a few glimpses from our family literacy events and Steps for Success events:

Families for Literacy (FFL) events for families of adult learners at Mission Library:

At a Steps for Success event last month at Scott Lane Elementary, we distributed 129 gift books and made 62 library cards. In all, we handed out 247 books to children from low-income families at 4 school sites last month. (At another family literacy event for families of preschoolers at Scott Lane, we reached out to over 60 families and gave out 38 new library cards) . Thank you so much to the caring team of staff and volunteers who make this literacy outreach possible.
