From the beginning of the establishment of library literacy programs by the California State Library in 1984, library programs in Southern California have been meeting to share resources and ideas, and address literacy issues. The Southern California Library Literacy Network (SCLLN) was formalized in 1985. The pioneering libraries which participated in the first year of the California Literacy Campaign (CLC) were:

  • Commerce Public Library
  • County of Los Angeles Public Library
  • Imperial County Free Library
  • Kern County Library
  • Los Angeles Public Library
  • Monterey Park (Bruggemeyer Memorial) Library
  • Pasadena Public Library
  • Placentia Library District
  • San Bernardino County Library
  • San Diego County Library
  • Santa Ana Public Library
  • Ventura County Library

Since 1985, both SCLLN and CLC have grown. CLC is now California Library Literacy Services (CLLS) with over 100 participating libraries around the state. SCLLN has 49 member libraries and continues to expand our commitment to meet the literacy needs of Southern California.
