2017-18 Charity of the Year
Delaware County Literary Council
The Delaware County Literacy Council works with adults who wish to read, write, speak and understand English, helping them to increase their communication skills and to participate more fully in society. The Council uses volunteers to ensure that programs are free and accessible to everyone.
The Delaware County Literacy Council was founded in 1975 by volunteers who were concerned about the number of local adults who had trouble with reading and writing. Currently, the Literacy Council offers free one-on-one tutoring and instruction in reading, writing, math, GED preparation, and English as a Second Language (ESL) to local adults.
