We’re Re-Opening!

Salt Spring Literacy is re-opening on Monday, July 6 with restricted hours.
We will be open two days a week, Monday and Tuesday, 12-4. We will have a computer available for public use on a first-come basis. Depending on how busy we are, use will be limited to 30 minutes.

If you’re interested in volunteering or receiving tutor support, please phone or email for an appointment.

We have a safety plan in place. We will have a sanitizing station at the door to ensure the safety of all: staff, board members, and the public. Masks need to be worn and will provide one if you don’t have your own. High touch areas will be sanitized after use and the building cleaned frequently. We will limit the number of people in the office to four.

Tutoring is occurring in a socially-distanced manner outside  the office while computer tutoring is offered by phone.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Donate Now!
During the COVID-19 crisis, people need literacy skills more than ever. Salt Spring Literacy is raising funds to support our programs, which strengthen the literacy skills of children and adults on Salt Spring Island.
We are fundraising because our annual November Book & Jewelry Sale was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Despite the pandemic, we have continued to provide programming. Programs such as one current initiative, our 1,000 X 5 program, which provides books to preschool families, supporting child literacy.

Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar – up to a total of $10,000 – thanks to our provincial literacy organization, Decoda Literacy Solutions. So, you can double your impact by giving to this campaign.

Please give today, thank you! We appreciate your support.

Salt Spring Literacy Closed

Salt Spring Literacy will be closed from Monday, March 16 for at least two weeks as a precaution against COVID-19. We wish to protect the health of our tutors, learners, staff, and community.
