Left Coast Crime's designated charity is the Sacramento Library Adult Literacy Program.

The Sacramento Public Library Literacy Services helps English-speaking adults improve their reading and writing skills so they can reach their potential as workers, parents, community members and life-long learners.

The key component of Sacramento Public Library Literacy Service is that instruction is provided in a one-to-one or small group setting by trained volunteers. As a result, a customized approach can be taken with each adult. This individualization means that adults learn what they need to learn, at their own pace, and are able to directly apply their new skills to their lives.

Over the past 27 years, Sacramento Public Library Literacy Service has provided adult basic literacy to more than 7500 adult learners, helping them to achieve both academic and life-skill goals.

Over 7000 volunteers have been trained and given of their time to help adults in the Sacramento community to improve their reading & writing skills.

In addition to one-to-one tutoring for adult learners, Sacramento Public Library Literacy Service provides a number of other services for our volunteer tutors and adult learners. These include bi-monthly in-service workshops and support groups, a monthly Tutor-Learner Book Club, and an annual regional literacy conference for both tutors and learners.

Contributions to the program provide much-needed support for new literacy centers, literacy staff, tutor training workshops, books and other print materials and computer software. Sacramento Public Library Literacy Service serves the entire Sacramento City/County region with 29 library locations representing a population base in excess of 1.4 million in a geographic area of 965 miles.
