The Clarksville-Montgomery County Adult Literacy Council provides free one-on-one instruction for adults who want to learn to read or improve their reading skills in the Clarksville-Montgomery County / Ft. Campbell area.

The Clarksville-Montgomery County Adult Literacy Council was established in 1985 to promote public awareness of the need for literacy education in the area.

The Adult Literacy Council recruits and trains tutors interested in teaching adults with low reading and computation skills or students who have a need to learn English as a second language. The Adult Literacy Council works in cooperation with other literacy projects and seeks to obtain and allocate funds for local literacy programs. A major function of Adult Literacy Council is to support the Adult Education Program by providing free one-on-one tutoring for Adult Education students who need special assistance.

The Literacy Council has two part time (20 hours per week) employees: the director (Velma Jo Williams) and the office assistant (Carol Davis). The office is open from 9 to 4 Monday through Friday.
