CLC Logo

The Carteret Literacy Council (CLC) is a non-profit (501) C (3) organization founded in 1984. Our mission is to reduce illiteracy in Carteret County by improving the reading, writing and arithmetic skills of young people and adults through the efforts of CLC trained tutors and other volunteers.

Free One-On-One Tutoring

We provide FREE private tutoring in reading and math to any adult resident in Carteret County. Our only requirement is that "you have to want our help."

Annual Adult Literacy Spelling Bee

We organize our Spelling Bee each year in October. If you love to spell or if you simply love to watch others have fun trying to spell difficult words, this event is perfect for you. This event is open to the public, and cheering is encouraged! Click here to read about our current Bee.

Headstart Story Telling

Lucille Loomis   We maintain a lending library, and volunteer storytellers read to the children.


We will come to your location and do a presentation on literacy, at no cost to you. If your club, church, non-profit group, business, or group wants to know more about the importance of literacy, please contact us by telephone 252-808-2020 or email.
