The mission of the Library and Literacy Foundation for
San Joaquin County is to support programs in our
communities that foster literacy and promote the power
of reading to enrich lives.
The Library and Literacy Foundation for San Joaquin
County was incorporated in 1990 as a non-profit,
tax-exempt organization in response to the specific need
to fully fund the Stockton-San Joaquin County Public
Library's Adult Literacy program. The Foundation has
since expanded to support family and community literacy
programs and assist
with sustaining the Library's book budget.
