Moore County Literacy Council

is a 501(c)(3) organization, formed in 1987 by a few committed individuals. The founders recognized the crippling effect of low literacy on individuals, families, and communities and how teaching reading can open the universe for those who desire to grow and prosper.  We are a volunteer based organization that is supported by a small professional staff and pledged to make a difference in the lives of local individuals, families, and communities.

To work with others to significantly improve literacy in Moore County in ways that are measurable and immeasurable by teaching basic literacy and life skills to Moore County residents by offering free educational and tutoring services.
