GLENS FALLS — Tri-County Literacy Center is excited to announce that they have received start-up funding for their reorganization project from The Glens Falls Foundation.
This funding will enable Tri-County Literacy Center (TLC) to help community members improve their lives by fostering literacy skills through practical, leaner-centered education. TLC provides adult learners in Warren, Washington, and Saratoga Counties with necessary resources and skills to achieve their literacy goals, which provides opportunities for independence and economic mobility.
TLC is an offshoot nonprofit organization created in September 2020 after the recent dissolution of Literacy New York Greater Capital Region. The new organization is headquartered at Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls.
