5th Annual Team Up! Dream Up! For Literacy Fundraiser - Sunday, Sept. 29th
The library's Literacy Services program provides resources and help so people can transform their lives for the better.
Last year, volunteer tutors provided 2,357 hours of instruction to learners who were able to complete amazing goals, including: completing their GED, receiving a promotion at work, reading a bedtime story to their grandchildren, or even writing a book. Our learner-turned-author, Mabel Ngo, will be signing copies of her book at the fundraiser this year, with all proceeds from book sales and the event going to support literacy services in Monrovia.
To learn more about the fundraiser or to purchase tickets, visit the Monrovia Public Library Foundation's website.
