    What is Families for Literacy?

    Family Literacy services focus on adult literacy learners and their family members, younger and older generations alike. Adult learners are either already enrolled in OC Read, or are eligible to be enrolled.

    OC Read provides family literacy events in the library and through community outreach. OC Read collaborates with other library departments to offer enjoyable family reading and storytelling experiences, advocacy training, and more. Family Literacy events are designed based on learners' aspirations as family members.

    Library programs that are already promoting Family for Literacy throughout the OC Public Libraries system include:

    Who is eligible?

    Families that are eligible to receive family literacy services:

    • Have one or more family members enrolled in OC Read; or
    • Include an adult with low literacy skills who is eligible to be enrolled in OC Read.

    If you are interested in becoming an adult learner with OC Read, please call (714) 566-3070 to speak with a literacy coordinator. More information about our Adult Literacy program can be found on the About OC Read page under the FAQ.
