Stillwater Literacy Council History.
The Stillwater Literacy Council was established in 1979. The office for the Literacy Council was originally located at Action, Inc. The office was moved to the Stillwater Public Library in 1995, where it is today. The Council is a member of the Oklahoma Literacy Coalition. Funding is obtained by grants from Oklahoma Department of Libraries and Stillwater United Way. Plus, donations from local businesses and citizens.
The Council is governed by a Advisory Board that was formed in 1996. Meetings for the council are held each second Monday of the month at 6:00 pm , room 102, Stillwater Public Library. Meetings are open to the public. Our President is Claudia Thomas, Vice President is Ron Avants, Secretary is Kelly File and Treasurer is Adran Wagner. There are 7 other board members.
