Literacy Society of the North Okanagan

Literacy Society of the North Okanagan works with community partners and volunteers to help meet the literacy needs of people of the North Okanagan.

Literacy is the lens through which we see the world. It is a continuum that every one of us lives on, every moment of every day. And no matter what our level of education, every one of us has literacy challenges.

By not giving literacy the attention it deserves in our communities, we make the world a more difficult place for all of us to live and work.

The modern world speaks to us in a constantly changing language; one that often can be difficult to comprehend. Literacy is the ability to understand the rapidly evolving world around us, and to have a the ability to move confidently through it.

Literacy happens everywhere. Literacy is LIFE.*
