Operation Literacy’s goal is to encourage and assist children as they embark on the path of reading; our membership works in various ways to help students achieve this goal. Members assist the English Learner teacher at Shades Cahaba Elementary School with numerous projects as requested. The Book Nook at the Shops of Assistance League provides donated books to customers as an inexpensive avenue to acquire valuable reading material.

Assistance League was named a 2013 National Make A Difference Day Award Honoree in recognition of efforts to collect and distribute new books to local children.
