A new literacy series kicks off on Thursday with a goal-setting workshop.

The Timmins Learning Centre is hosting the learning series to help you improve your life literacy. Executive Director Michelle Goulet says with it being the beginning of the year, goal-setting seems like a great way to kick off the monthly workshops.

The workshop will run from 11:30am to 1:00pm on Thursday at the learning centre and costs $5 per person, but is free for TLC students. Goulet says you must register before the end of the Wednesday workday.
