Adult Literacy is a free countywide program that matches adult learners ages 16 years and over with volunteers for confidential one-on-one tutoring. Students are assessed and generally read at a fourth grade reading level. Tutors help students improve their reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary and comprehension. Pairs meet at any branch library throughout San Joaquin County once or twice a week, for a half hour session and are asked to make a six-month commitment. Volunteer training and all resources are provided. Pairs are matched based on the days and times of availability.

Career Online High School is a scholarship program available for those wanting to earn their high school diploma in eighteen months. Previous courses taken in high school will be evaluated. The following certificates are also offered: security guard, food services, truck driving and more. Please visit their website for more information.
