1980 - 2023
40+ Years of Free Literacy Programming

The South Shore Literacy Council has been providing non-profit literacy services since 1980. 
In those 40+ years, we have championed literacy tutoring, activities tailored for intellectually disabled adults, 

a weekly pre-literacy music program for young families, and inclusive programming for seniors. 


Rachel Wagner Lemblé

Rachel has been with the South Shore Literacy Council since 2017. 
She is a LOUD Librarian. In association with the SSLC, she has
directed the Mother Goose Program for over a decade. She believes
that literacy at all levels is less about rote learning and more about
human connection.
