Celebrate Literacy

Did you know that 1 in 4 or 24% of adults in Waterloo-Wellington 16 years of age and over fall within the lowest levels of literacy? Literacy is more than being able to read and write. There are nine Essential Skills that have been identified as essential to work, learning, and life. These skills include: Reading, Document Use, Numeracy, Writing, Oral Communication, Working with Others, Thinking, Computer Use, and Continuous Learning.

Celebrate Literacy

As part of its commitment to supporting literacy and lifelong learning, the Kitchener Public Library provides access to materials, programs, services and facilities to those upgrading their literacy skills. KPL provides supports for learners of all ages, teachers and tutors, as well as our community partners.
