The American Library Association announces the second round of funding to help public libraries develop and implement adult literacy services.

Dale Lipschultz, the literacy officer for the American Library Association's Office for Literacy and Outreach Services, talks about the American Library Association (ALA) receiving a two-year grant of $750,000 from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation for The American Dream Starts @ your library. This funding makes it possible for ALA to fund 70 public libraries in Dollar General communities to develop literacy programs for adult English language learners.
