JANE, LITERACY AND LIBRARIES

Libraries are as important for literacy today as they were for Jane Austen two hundred years ago. 

 
 

supporting literacy skills for all

We engage the Jane Austen and book loving community in volunteering for literacy and funding e-libraries as centres of literacy.

Inspired by Jane Austen's passion for reading and writing, and the importance of libraries to Jane's own learning and literacy development, we are not for profit organisation run entirely by volunteers who give their time and literacy skills to mentor children online and raise funds to provide e-libraries for developing communities.  100% of donations received are spent on literacy resources.

LITERACY MATTERS

Being able to read and write is a necessity

EDUCATION

Education is the key to self improvement and unlocking one's potential. Literacy is the gateway to pride and possibilities.

EMPOWERMENT

Literacy increases empathy, imagination and creativity. It is an essential skill for those who want to understand, enjoy and influence the world around them.

ENJOYMENT

The simple pleasure of reading a book is universal. "I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading" - Jane Austen.
