Letters of Support

On our road to creating a more literate world, we have been joined by the following partners:

The California State Library
Since 1984 the California State Library has funded adult literacy programs in public libraries throughout the State. Through its guidance and support, thousands of California adults have learned to read and write. The SIBL Project was supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by State Librarian Dr. Kevin Starr. www.library.ca.gov

BAlit - Bay Area Literacy BAlit
Bay Area Literacy is a consortium of 25 library-based adult literacy programs in the San Francisco Bay region, from Lake County in the north to Santa Clara County in the south. Together, BAlit member programs promote public awareness of literacy issues and collaborate on joint ventures to strengthen available literacy services. BAlit has worked with the SIBL Project since its inception. www.literacynet.org/balit/

Center for the Book in the Library of Congress
"Telling America's Stories," the Library of Congress's national reading promotion campaign for 2001-2003 is proud to link itself with The SIBL Project. With First Lady Laura Bush as honorary chair of the campaign, the campaign raises public awareness of the crucial importance of literacy and reading to our society. www.loc.gov/cfbook
