Literacy Month

September is Literacy Month in British Columbia!

Each September, we lead a province-wide awareness and fundraising campaign. Literacy Month raises awareness of the importance of literacy, and raises funds to support community-based literacy programs and initiatives across British Columbia.

The 2019 theme for Literacy Month is #PutOnYourPurple.

Learn more about literacy in BC with our Literacy Matters Fact Sheet and Literacy Matters Infographic.
