The Langley Literacy Association is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 by interested community people to focus on enhancing literacy throughout our community.
2010 Literacy Now invited all B.C. communities to develop and submit a community literacy plan that would assess literacy programs and resources in each community, to identify assets as well as gaps and challenges and create a community plan that would support and promote literacy in that community.
The Langley Literacy Association took on that challenge hosting a community launch and planning meeting in March of 2005. This process resulted in the formation of the Langley Literacy Now Task Force – a broad-based group representing Langley social service providers, the Fraser Valley Regional library, Kwantlen University College, Langley School District, the Aboriginal community and the faith community. Planning funds to continue the process were received in July 2005.
The Task Force met for the next 2 years, and through extensive community consultation developed the Langley community literacy plan called “Literacy for the 21st Century: A Plan for Langley”. The plan was approved by 2010 Literacy Now in 2008.
The Langley Community Literacy Plan was presented to and endorsed by the community at the first Langley Literacy Summit in February of 2008. The summit resulted in the formation of the Langley Community Literacy Steering Committee whose task it is to oversee the implementation of the plan.
