CMLC is a community-based learning center where individuals and families of all cultures come together to share, mentor, and understand cultural literacies, to access resources, and to build a cohesive community in a safe, welcoming environment.
Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center (CMLC) is a place where people of all cultures can come together in a “living room for learning,” where all people can be teachers and learners, where sharing cultures and expanding literacies enables everyone to take part in the community.
We are in an historic 1910 house at 128 SW Ninth Street in Corvallis, Oregon. The center is conveniently located in the heart of the city, emphasizing that it is a gathering place for people from all over the community. It is near the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, the Arts Center, Central Park, Oregon State University, and the city bus transfer hub.
Resources and programming are free. No appointment is necessary during the open hours, Monday-Friday 10am-5pm.
CMLC encourages active exchange of ideas and conversation. People of all beliefs coming to the center should feel comfortable; therefore, religious proselytizing has no place in the connections made at the center.
