Celebrate Literacy

While literacy is a right for everyone, many struggle throughout life without basic reading, writing, speaking, listening and numeracy skills. This journey does not have to be undertaken alone. There are countless organizations around the city to aid those in and around Lethbridge in their pursuit of a literate life.

Celebrate Literacy

The Word On The Street festival is committed to improving the reading skills and functional literacy of Canadians.
