The mission of the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library is to meet the cultural, educational, and informational needs of the residents of the City of Monterey Park by providing free and open access to its resources and services. The LAMP (Literacy for All of Monterey Park) Program is one avenue of fulfilling this mission.
The Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library was one of the first libraries in California to offer literacy services as part of the California Literacy Campaign (CLC), sponsored by the California State Library. Since 1984, LAMP (Literacy for All of Monterey Park) has been committed to helping individuals of the community to improve their skills so that they can reach their goals and fulfill their dreams. Trained volunteers in one-to-one, and small group settings provide tutoring for all ages.
LAMP has already helped many to improve their skills and to reach a variety of goals:
- to get a job
- help their children with schoolwork
- to become more active in community affairs
- to pursue higher education
- and to simply feel more confident
