Carnegie Literacy Needs Assessment (1998)

This is a report on research conducted by the Carnegie Community Centre, which is a busy, active place that acts as the "Living Room" of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. The author conducted a needs assessment to document some of the ways in which literacy learning is already taking place at Carnegie, as well as some of the un-met needs for literacy learning. The result of this research was to provide a snapshot look at literacy at Carnegie and some recommendations for change. The main question asked of participants in the study was: "In what ways is "literacy" part of the daily activity at Carnegie, and what could be done to support staff, patrons, and volunteers with literacy-related activities?"
