Support our Children’s Literacy Programs
Donations to our literacy programs allow us to hire and train high school and/or post-secondary students to tutor children in our Summer Literacy Program and OWLS Tutoring. The Summer Literacy Program provides tutoring for children in kindergarten through grade three during July and August. These children have been recommended by their teachers for extra help with their reading and writing. Owls Tutoring is a free, after-school tutoring program where children in JK-Gr. 8 receive one-on-one tutoring in 5-6 week sessions through the school year.
Participating in our literacy programs is proven to improve children’s attitudes & confidence about reading. We help over 200 children each year! Our programs are funded entirely by grants & donations, making it impossible to run without the help of people like you!
You can donate via the form below, at the library at 30 Herriott St, or by making a contribution to our endowment fund, the Children’s Literacy Fund at the Perth and District Community Foundation.
