The Literacy program at the Kitimat Community Services Society has moved to the Breezeway between the Royal Bank and the Bank of Montreal. Programs have begun.

“The literacy programs have moved to a new location in a space that we call the Community Corner and here we hold ESL (English as a Second Language) classes. We also coordinate a variety of literacy activies out of this space so people who want to learn English and people that need to work on their literacy skills with an individual tutor,” said Brandi Thornton.

“We work on coodinating community literacy events,” said Alyson Worboys. “We coordinate some other individual literacy activies. Things that we put on at Delta King Place, at the Senior’s Centre and maybe at the library throughout the year.”

Events like last January’s Family Literacy Night which was held at Nechako Elementary School. They are already planning for next January, a night at the high school.

People are happy with the more visible location in the community. They are no longer tucked away and they do not have to go through a secretary to find them and learn about the services.

Kitimat Literacy is always looking for new tutors. For more information about the services offered at the Community Corner, call 250-632-7393 or email kitimatliteracy,,,telus.net.
