Shop to Benefit The Literacy Council on December 17th!

Pick out your favorites at Barnes and Noble.

Mention to the cashier that you are shopping to benefit

The Literacy Council and help us forward our mission!


Educating adults to become self-sufficient members of society.


“How might life be different if I was unable to read directions on a prescription bottle when my child is ill?”


Every call is different. One caller might be asking for help with reading, another might be asking for help to speak English. The next might be an adult struggling with the secret of being illiterate. We might not be able to solve all their problems, but we do provide a soothing voice and a caring ear – and before the call ends, the individual calling will have the help they need.  That is our mission!
