Changing lives one word at a time

Welcome!  Our Mission Statement:  Believing that literacy is the foundation for a sustainable community, Washtenaw Literacy provides literacy support, free of charge, to adults through a network of trained tutors. It is our vision to eliminate illiteracy in Washtenaw County. Since 1971, we have been empowering adults through improved literacy. Join us in changing lives and promoting equity in our community.    

Our office is open! Visit us at our main office at the Ypsilanti District Library (5577 Whittaker Road, Ypsilanti, MI 48197). Current office hours are Monday, Wednesday & Thursday, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Washtenaw Literacy serves the community both in person and virtually.
