About Us

Welcome to The Literacy Center

Tuesday the 3rd of December is Giving Tuesday, an international day of giving that aims to raise awareness of the world’s non-profits and charitable organizations

We’ve made giving easy. You can find a PayPal donate button on the right hand side of every page of this site, or you can click here. You can also donate time by signing up as a volunteer, or you can donate items from our wishlist.

Who Are We?

The Literacy Center has been serving the tri-state for over 50 years!   We strive to educate individuals in our community, so they can live happier, healthier, more independent lives.  We provide Basic Adult Literacy (BAL) and high school equivalency (formerly GED) preparation programs.  We are funded by grants, individual and community donations, and special events.  We are a non-profit with a 501(c)3 tax status. 

Our signature events are Sip ‘n Spell SCRABBLE Tournament held in the spring and our Holiday Online Auction held in the fall each year. You can find information about our programs by clicking on them below.
