Dismantling Canada's only English-language national adult literacy library

As a result of the end of federal core funding, The Centre has dismantled its library, once the largest English-language adult literacy collection in Canada (with over 6000 items), and the only one providing service across the country.

Many parts of the collection have been relocated. We have sent our Easy-to-Read materials to the Fraser Hickson library, and our ESL teaching and learning materials to the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library, while our Learning Disabilities collection has gone to the Montreal Centre for Learning Disabilities. Teaching and learning materials in the areas of adult and family literacy, numeracy, aboriginal literacy, women's education, and workplace literacy and training have gone to the Centre de documentation sur l’éducation des adultes et la condition féminine (CDÉACF). We will make announcements as these materials become available.

The Centre is keeping its research and policy documents related to adult literacy.
