World Read Aloud Day

Local author and World Read Aloud Day Ambassador Teri Cettina explained how World Read Aloud Day on  March 9th will motivate children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology. Across the globe nearly 171 million children could be lifted out of poverty if they left school with basic reading and writing skills. Quality literacy education is the difference between life and death, prosperity and despair. This is literacy for survival.  Go to litworld.org to find out what you can do to help.
