Products and Services:
Literacy Network is a non-profit organization in Madison, WI, made up of teachers, students, tutors, volunteers and donors all working together to improve adult literacy in Dane County. A wide variety of programs is offered to help low-literate adults improve their reading, writing and English skills so that they may better achieve goals specific to their needs: to read to their children or help with homework, to fill out a job application, to understand finances, or speak with a doctor about a health concern.
Philosophy:
We support our local ecosystem, and are committed to our community's growth. By partnering with many local organizations, we are able to establish many opportunities for adults and families in our community.
History:
Literacy Network was founded as the Madison Literacy Council in 1974 by a retired UW-Madison professor named Ray Wagner. Mr. Wagner had attended a training by Dr. Frank Laubach and was inspired to start a volunteer literacy organization to serve the needs of adult learners.
