Program Overview

Mission: The mission of the CCLR is to both improve the literacy level of the general population (children who are learning to read, school-age children who are behind grade level, adults who lack reading skills) and provide those who are passionate about reading with opportunities to share that passion with others. The CCLR does not limit its activities to one group of people, either by age, socio-economic status, or by reading ability. Goals: 1) To provide and promote literacy opportunities for the people of Hattiesburg and the surrounding area. 2) To provide support and opportunities for faculty research. 3) To create a network of university and community members who are dedicated to making Hattiesburg a community that values and promotes reading activities. 4) To be a community resource for professional education.
