Literacy Virtual Valentine

February 13, 2008

This virtual valentine goes out to my friends at Second Start Adult Literacy in Oakland, Ca. I was fortunate enough to go out and visit them on a recent trip to California for a friends’ wedding. I was inspired by their shared space with the public library and their Barton Reading resources (very similar to our Wilson Reading System!).
Most of all I was inspired by their dedicated staff. This valentine goes to you!
I could see myself and my co-workers in each staff person I met. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and truly dedicated to their mission of helping non-readers become readers! Thank you for all you do!
Another inspiration: the Oakland Reader Publications. These books are collections of stories, poems and essays written by Adult Literacy students at various levels. Tutors: This could be the perfect valentines day gift for your student! *We also have a few copies in our AL library at LWB…come check them out!
