According to a study by the Program for International Assessment of Adult Competencies, approximately 32 percent of Riverside County residents’ ability to understand print material is considered “at-risk.”
Riverside County Library System (RCLS) addresses the adult literacy gap with free community classes and one-on-one tutoring available to all Riverside County residents.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, literacy services and programs are now offered online using video conferencing. Chromebooks and tablets are also available for checkout by enrolled adult learners to help bridge the digital divide exacerbated by the pandemic.
RCLS Literacy Services also provides one-on-one reading and writing tutoring, English Conversation Clubs, and citizenship preparation classes. In January 2021, these same sessions will be available with a new addition called “How to Stay Healthy” instructed by a retired local physician. Each topic was identified as a need by the RCLS community of learners and created to specifically address learners’ needs and aspirations.
The Spring 2021 Literacy Class Schedule lists the full schedule of classes and registration information.
RCLS is a division of the Riverside County Business and Community Services. For more information, contact the RCLS Literacy Services Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 951-840-7901 or [email protected].
