Literacy Impacts Us All

Effective Monday, March 16, The Literacy Center will cancel all onsite and offsite classes through the end of the month. Additionally, the tutor update meeting on April 3 will be postponed.

The Literacy Center also made the difficult, but necessary, decision to postpone our upcoming The American Dream Celebration. We hope to reschedule the event to a future date to raise funds for the continued success of our adult distance learning program. We will circle back with you as soon as we have further information.
