The Solano County Library Foundation (SCLF) is a nonprofit organization established more than 25 years ago to support the literacy programs of the eight Solano County libraries. Since the founding, SCLF has raised more than $5 million to fund programs and projects that are not funded by public dollars. The programs that we support include:
· Reach Out and Read (child literacy program)
· Tutor.com (on-line homework help)
· Adult Literacy and English as a Second Language
· Solano Kids Read (free book distribution for participating classes, grades 4-8)
The recruitment goal of the Solano County Library Foundation is to develop a Board of Directors that constitute a diverse geographic and demographic representation that can bring to their deliberation a variety of points of view and life perspectives. Skills and experiences are especially needed in the areas of civic and cultural awareness, finance, education, civic, legal, and economic development.
SCLF Board members are appointed to serve a two-year term. Board terms officially run January through December. Board members who are in good standing may be re-appointed to serve another two-year term.

To illustrate these programs we have provided two videos which explain how both Reach Out and Read and Tutor.com work to benefit Solano County citizens.

The Solano County Library Foundation received $10,000 from Board of Directors member, Dr. Ash Varma in support of Reach Out And Read. Reach Out and Read gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.
Your donations during this matching grant period and throughout the year help us to continue to support literacy activities in Solano County.
In 2017, Navalta created the Robby Poblete Foundation in honor of her son, Robby, who was killed by gun violence in Vallejo in 2014. The nonprofit’s mission is to reduce gun violence through its gun buyback program, and transform the weapons into instruments of hope and opportunity through its art and vocational programs. In just under two years, the foundation has succeeded in getting nearly 1,000 firearms out of circulation, launched its Art of Peace program, which transforms the guns into art, in five cities, and has distributed more than $20,000 in apprenticeship scholarships to people from at-risk and high-risk populations.
Help us build and strengthen these programs that support literacy in Solano County:
