ABSTRACT
Since 1986 the Bolivar County Literacy Council (BCLC) has worked to alleviate the low literacy rates in Bolivar County. Four years later a literacy coordinator was hired and in 1994, the BCLC moved into the refurbished Cleveland Train Depot as part of the Cleveland Depot Library. Working as the only library in Mississippi solely devoted to literacy and within ten years, through a series of innovative strategies, the Bolivar County Literacy Council had become Mississippi's largest literacy program within a single county. Today, the Council resides in an almost 6,000 square foot building, complete with three computer learning laboratories and three instructional classrooms.
