The Literacy Council of Central Alabama (LCCA) serves as a clearinghouse for literacy information and referrals.  The LCCA conducts public awareness campaigns designed to keep the crisis of illiteracy in the public eye.  Volunteer tutors and learners are recruited by publicizing a central telephone number (326-1925  or 1-888-448-READ) to call for information.  Calls are then transferred directly to an appropriate literacy or adult education program.  More about our programs...
