Yolo County Library Foundation Prioritizes Early Literacy in 2021

As a volunteer-run organization, 100% of donations and grants are used to support YCLF’s top funding priority – early literacy. The National Commission on Reading states, “the single most significant factor influencing a child’s early educational success is an introduction to books and being read to at home prior to beginning school.”

In 2021, YCLF:

  • Purchased 2,400 children’s books that were distributed during the Library’s 2021 Summer Reading Program.
  • Purchased 1,125 books that were distributed to children enrolled in Head Start and Early Head Start programs.
  • Funded an eBook and eAudiobook collection specifically for children.
  • Funded a 3-year subscription to the Tumblebook Library, a database of children’s eBooks that has over 1,100 titles for grades K-6, which have been used over 4,000 times by children in four local school districts.

Supporting early literacy and equal access to libraries is a mission that continues for all of us at YCLF, and you can help. Donate today!
