Sedalia Area Literacy Council

The Sedalia Area Literacy Council promotes quality of life by initiating community development projects that support literacy.

The goals of the Literacy Council are to formulate and participate in programs that will increase the literacy rate, promote reading, and link local business, education, and the community.
