The mission of LVA-PW is to teach adults the life changing skills of reading, writing, and speaking English that will enable them to participate and prosper in our society.
LVA-PW was formed in 1991 when a library patron asked a local librarian Dona Swanson to teach him to read. She did and then gathered her friends, local teachers, and other librarians and incorporated what would become LVA-PW. Since 1991, LVA-PW has grown – especially in recent years with the downturn of the economy. LVA-PW has been able to meet the demand for adult literacy services because of the generous support from our community – both in terms of volunteers and funding support.
