What's the Word?

The HHLL is supported by... 

Hoosier Literacy 

Our Local Literacy League​.

The ARCC was quiet. We were busy in the building where AHS students of old wrestled with academic challenges. At the end of the hall in what is now the Activity Room, we sat - 2 learners, a tutor and myself.  It was one of those rare moments when everything seemed to be coming together.

These words mean nothing to 2,558 Dearborn County Residents.

(according to 2003 statistics www.nces.ed.gov/naal)

When adults read to young children, children learn that the dots, lines and squiggles on a page form words, and those words form stories.


When children learn to read stories, they can read to learn all kinds of other things, and whole world of knowledge opens up to them.


When adults improve their own reading and writing skills, they are empowered to improve their life.

When we all work together to promote literacy, we are empowered to improve our community.
