Literacy is for everyone,
for every purpose,
now.

The Powell River Literacy Council is dedicated to the promotion of literacy and learning for people throughout the Powell River region. Our purpose is to increase awareness around local, provincial and national literacy issues, and to promote the importance and benefits of increased literacy for people of all ages and all walks of life.

Literacy is about so much more than reading and writing - it includes numeracy, computers, critical thinking and analysis, problem solving - and more! Literacy is, in fact, the foundation that touches everything in a community. It has been proven that the more literate a community is, the stronger it will be.

Get involved in literacy, and help to make Powell River a better place to live. Explore this site to find out about the programs and services available in Powell River and the surrounding areas.
