Looking back to 2002, the CLC was formed as a standing committee of the Community Network (formerly the Child, Youth and Family Network). This partnership was created to monitor and promote literacy in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
In 2007, the CLC became a literacy task group as defined by 2010 Legacies. The CLC applied to Literacy Now for a grant to develop and implement a literacy plan. That grant continues to fund the positions of the CLC’s Literacy Outreach Workers (LOWs).
Over the past few years, the CLC held annual strategic planning sessions to decide how to conduct its work. Copies of these annual plans can be found at Read Now BC.
