The Corona Public Library is proud to bring awareness to the global literacy needs, including those in our own community, and we are committed to providing resources to help make a positive change. 

THE SHOCKING FACTS

According to ProLiteracy, every important social issue is impacted by low literacy.

• Children of parents with low literacy skills have a 72 percent chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves.
• Of adults with the lowest literacy levels, 43 percent live in poverty, and 70% of adult welfare recipients have low literacy levels.
• Every year, one in six young adults—more than 1.2 million—drop out of high school.
