|Nevada Center for the Book/Literacy Office|
The Nevada Center for the Book/Literacy Office supports the efforts of non-profit state, county, and local literacy improvement programs for Nevadans, including libraries, Adult Basic Education, English as a Second Language, Summer Reading, and Volunteer Tutor programs. The Literacy Office takes a highly collaborative approach to accomplishing its goals, recognizing the importance of state and local partners in attaining goals and objectives.
The NLO continues its focus to ensure that educationally disadvantaged adults have equitable access to information and materials in such areas as basic reading and computation; language acquisition; and family, health, financial, technology and information literacy. As literacy research and best practice have evolved, it has become important to approach literacy from a lifespan perspective. Reflecting that evolution in best practice, the NLO works across the lifespan, addressing literacy issues from pre-kindergarten through adulthood, with a focus on family literacy.
