The Reading Program started in 1985 as an early member of the State Library's California Literacy Campaign. In 2001, the program was re-named "Vision Literacy." Beginning in June of 2010, the re-structured service went back to its original name, The Reading Program.
Services are targeted to adults residing in the Santa Clara County Library District service area. Not sure if we serve your area? California Library Literacy Services can connect you to the program nearest you. Click here or call 1-888-767-7323.
