Let’s work together to address the hidden literacy crisis in PEI.  Research shows that many adults and children are struggling with reading, writing and math.  How can PEI prosper when almost half of working-aged Islanders don’t have the skills needed to thrive in the 21st century? By investing your time or money with us, you are investing in breaking the cycle of low-literacy and poverty.  

Partner with us and help Islanders continue to have access to our free literacy programs.  These programs boost literacy skills, confidence and learning attitudes – all of which are the building blocks to success. 

Let’s work together to help the people of Prince Edward Island reach their full potential, and make PEI a great place to live, work and thrive.

We will make it easy for you to get involved!

Community, Businesses, and Government come together to build mini-home libraries for children in PEI

The Imagination Library in PEI is a free book gifting program hosted by the PEI Literacy Alliance and is possible thanks to our key partners:

  • Province of PEI
  • Rotary Club of Charlottetown
  • Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty
  • Rotary Club of Montague & Eastern PEI

During our Inspire a Love of Reading fundraising campaign in December 2020, we raised an additional $45,000 for this program thanks to the generosity of many Island businesses and individuals.  Dave Arsenault of Tops to Floors (pictured on the right) kickstarted the campaign with a major donation of $29,000!  This program serves around 4000 children ages 0-4.
