OVL Cape Cod Literacy Project

Childhood literacy and literacy among non- English speaking residents of Cape Cod are both enduring casualties of the 2020 Covid Pandemic. Programs such as “Cape Literacy” have to date not regrouped to provide the essential community resource of reading, writing and language skills.

By employing its staff, a committed volunteer base and its considerable on – line tutorial resources, the
Osterville Village Library has created the OVL-Cape Cod Literacy Project to fill this void in communities
across the Cape.

Transparent Language Online is available in 110+ languages, including ESL, learners have the flexibility they need to learn a new language anytime, anywhere and at a pace that is comfortable. Click here to get started.
