The CDÉACF Alpha Biblio Project (2009)

This document, part of a series of case studies on adult learning, examines a project initiated in the province of Quebec by the Centre de documentation sur l’éducation des adultes et la condition féminine (CDÉACF) and the Montreal Libraries Network.

The goal of the Alpha Biblio project, which is funded by the federal and provincial governments, is to boost cooperation between public libraries and Francophone literacy organizations in order to improve reading skills among Quebec's adults.

With the establishment of Alpha Biblio, the province’s literacy organizations can now count on front-end educational support from libraries. In total, 797 independent or affiliated pubic libraries, serving 849 municipalities, are aware of the Alpha Biblio project and its goals.

The project included the development of a guide showing how a public library and literacy organization can cooperate successfully and effectively.

The author notes that the project organizers hope to create a program model that can be used in other provinces.
