Formed in 1987, the Huntington County Literacy Coalition is a not-for-profit organization in partnership with the United Way. It helps Huntington County residents acquire reading, writing, and math skills at a basic level with the goal that such skills will allow individuals to participate more fully in society and in the workplace. An intake coordinator at the public library works to match community volunteers with non-reading adults or adults working on their GED who need tutors. A board of community members interested in promoting literacy serve six-year rotating terms and meet once a month to oversee the coalition.
