Literacy Volunteers of Marion County (LVMC) was organized and incorporated in the late 1980's. LVMC is a United Way agency and a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. It is affiliated with Literacy West Virginia & with ProLiteracy Worldwide.

LCMC provides free one on one tutoring in a confidential and friendly setting. Adults and chidlren receive help with basic reading, math and English as a second language (ESL). Housed in the Marion County Adult & Community Education Center (MCACEC), LVMC accepts referrals from MCACEC's GED class.

LVMC holds another fundraiser, the Run to Read Half Marathon, in early January at Prickett's Fort State Park. All profits from both events go to LVMC and provide the organization with over a third of its annual revnue.
