County Library Director José Aponte will greet visitors. Eduardo Garcia Acosta and his band, El Otro Son, will provide music and storytelling. Refreshments will be served.
The North County Adult Learning Center is a branch of the County Library’s main literacy center in the El Cajon Branch Library.

A second mission of the center is to coordinate ESL (English as a Second Language) tutoring.
