lithelpWhat is Literacy? The International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) defines literacy as “the ability to understand and employ printed information in daily activities at home, at work and in the community – to achieve one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential.”

Literacy is also about the ability to think, to communicate, to problem solve, to continually learn and to use technology.The North Bay Literacy Council has been improving literacy and essential skills in our community since 1978. We are a not for profit registered charity. We offer one to one tutoring services, small group literacy classes, workplace essential skills training, GED preparation, and a variety of workshops. “If you want to learn… we want to help”
