Established in 1977, The Literacy Center is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to literacy and

inspired by our students.  For over thirty five years, The Literacy Center has worked to help the people of the Lehigh Valley improve their lives, the lives of their families, and their community by improving their literacy. We’ve already touched the lives of more than 19,000 of your neighbors.


We offer FREE ESL classes and GED classes!
