Neighborhood Spotlight - Minnesota Literacy Council

Did you know that 61% of low-income families in the U.S. have 
zero 
children's books in their homes?

That is one thing the Minnesota Literacy Council is trying to change.   The MLC was started in 1972 by people who recognized that teaching a person to read is critical to their growth and self-sufficiency.  They have a great volunteer base and could always use more!

Today this group reaches 90,000 persons per year helping young children learn to read, helping others obtain their GED,and teaching computer literacy 


Located in The Foundry at 700 Raymond Avenue
The MLC promotes the "Power of Learning"
