Come on in...
the reading is fine!

For most of us, reading is so much a part of daily life we almost take the ability for granted.

However, in Humboldt County an estimated 13,800 adults are functionally illiterate —reading below a fifth grade level. Another 23,000 people in our county read below an eighth grade level.

Since 1985, Humboldt Literacy Project has been matching adult learners with trained tutors to raise the level of literacy in Humboldt County and improve the quality of life in our community.


The time to read is any time: no apparatus, no appointment of time and place, is necessary.  It is the only art which can be practised at any hour of the day or night, whenever the time and inclination comes, that is your time for reading; in joy or sorrow, health or illness.”

 ~Holbrook Jackson
