I think data.worldbank.org is going to be your best bet for getting this information.

Here is a direct link to the indicator for "Adult literacy rate, population 15+ years, both sexes (%)" (SE.ADT.LITR.ZS)


You can click "Databank" from that link to go to a table generator where you can limit your query to specific countries and years.
