Welcome to CCPL's website!
We hope you enjoy visiting the CCPL website. Our goals for this website are to share with you "who we are" "why literacy" and how you can help others in your family, community and workplace improve their literacy skills.
"Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy - which many believe goes hand in hand with it - will be dead as well." - Margaret Atwood
