Welcome to the Woodland Public Library!

Woodland Public Library

Woodland is a city in Yolo County, California, located approximately 15 miles northwest of Sacramento.  The city’s public library is the oldest, and one of the last functioning Carnegie-funded libraries in California.

A significant number of Woodland’s residents are functionally illiterate.  Functional illiteracy can limit a person’s ability to participate in society, access information, stay connected with their children’s teachers and school administrators, and pursue their goals.

The Woodland Public Library Literacy Services office directly addresses this issue, providing free, high-quality one-on-one tutoring to adult learners.  Adults served by the program achieve personal goals such as learning the alphabet, reading a book for the first time, getting a job, sharing a book with a child, reading a medicine label, volunteering in the community, and voting.  Literacy programs in California’s public libraries change the lives of nearly 16,000 Californians every year.

WPL’s Literacy Services office will be using the Impact Suite to help staff spend far more time focused on program quality, and way less time on paperwork and other administrative burdens.  At last, the program will have a one-stop-shop to manage tutor and learner enrollment, impact tracking, ongoing tutor professional development, communications with tutors and learners, and so much more.  The program will be migrating all of its data from its old data system — a service our Client Success Team facilitates (and a service for which we never charge).

Nearly half of all libraries receiving CLLS adult literacy funds from the California State Library now use the Impact Suite.  We’re so grateful to serve each and every program that gives us an opportunity to do so.
