Literacy Access Project : Lifelong Learning Collections
The Literacy Access Project represents the second phase of a larger initiative undertaken by The Centre for Literacy to formally assess and adjust its local mandate. The ultimate goal of this strategic effort was to formulate a long-term sustainability plan in the context of important changes that have been taking place in the English community in Quebec in recent years. These changes include a shrinking population base, cuts in provincial and federal funding, new responsibilities for school boards, and the recent creation of community learning centres in various regions of the province. On the basis of a 2006 Community Consultation and building on the 2007 Summer Institute on Libraries and Literacy, The Centre determined that it needed to develop more solid and lasting links between libraries and literacy groups that support English populations.
