Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The San Bernardino County Library System is a dynamic network of library branches that serves a diverse population over a vast geographic area. The San Bernardino County Library strives to provide equal access to information, technology, programs, and services for all people who call San Bernardino County home. The Adult Literacy program is just one of the many free programs that the San Bernardino County Library has to offer. This program provides free, individualized literacy services and materials to our patrons, community members and their families in a non-threatening, confidential, student-centered environment, in order to equip participants with lifelong learning skills and prepare them for personal, family, career and community success.

their learner’ s assessment, their goal sheet, and
one or two study books. An appointment will
be scheduled for the tutor to meet the learner.
At that time they will exchange phone numbers
and set up their weekly session time. All sessions
