The Power of People: Start a Literacy Movement

What can you do? 

During the month of September, we encourage you to read stories that take place in places all around the world. Send your creative ideas and photos of how you are celebrating International Literacy Day to and we will share them on our webpage, twitter, and facebook!!!

What else can you do? 

  1. Check out the International Literacy Day space on the ILA website: .

* Sign up for the International Literacy Day Activity Kit. You’ll receive an email link that has a downloadable PDF document with TONS of activities that are grade-appropriate.

* On the same link, there is a link for starting a “Little Free Library” in the community, the public library or in the classroom. It would be great for schools and teachers and the library to participate in an effort like this!

We can’t WAIT to see the good things happening in the New River Valley!
