Accessibility and outreach continue to sharpen the Lee County Literacy Coalition’s organizational focus moving into 2022. Lee County Literacy Coalition (LCLC) is excited to distribute cost-effective Pop-Up Libraries to increase outreach and enhance program awareness. Its goal is to promote the positive investment of reading, expand literacy in the community and reach people who traditionally do not use the library. LCLC aims to establish and strengthen partnerships as well. Each Pop-Up library is composed of a small bookshelf filled with free titles of varying genres and will feature a QR codes to scan videos for services and program information.

The first three pop-ups will be located in Auburn/Opelika, Valley and Loachapoka with rotation every 6 to 8 weeks. The movement of the pop-ups will be shared via social media with participating locations tagged and acknowledged as “Literacy Champions” LCLC will facilitate the set up and maintenance of the pop-ups.  The organization wants every adult who wants or needs help in their educational journey to have access and able to receive assistance. Its hope is that adults will be empowered to start or continue their literacy journey with integrity in a way that feels safe and achievable. The organization is asking for help increasing the literacy rates in Alabama. Special thanks to the Woman’s Club of Auburn for sponsoring the build costs.
