Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of Central Florida residents by providing educational resources, programs, and training opportunities through in-person presentations and the Internet. Targeting at-risk children and adults, we encourage them to reach their highest potential by discovering the rewards and joy of reading.
In 2013, we provided eleven different types of programs, 239 times to approximately 4,000 individuals in 40 different facilities. There were 40 different individual volunteers whose efforts totaled 2,200 volunteer hours. The Literacy Alliance was founded on high quality literacy programs that benefit the community. Providing these programs have been and always will be our highest goal. The literacy needs of the community are an important issue and it is our hope to address those needs more fully with each passing year.

Gracie22's Review for The Literacy Alliance
Last week I brought my daughter who has ADHD to the library to see the Bookbusters. The program was so fun and entertaining that she was engaged the whole time. And even though she often has anxiety about getting in front of others she felt very comfortable participating and getting involved. It was such a cool and creative show! She doesn't usually like to spend time with books but she loved the books presented with the puppets. I think it's awesome that the Bookbusters go out into the community and bring the library to kids who usually don't get to go. It's also great the way they make books fun for kids who sometimes struggle with the challenge of reading.
