International Literacy Day

This happens to fall on our first day of school this year!  The International Literacy Association has named this year "People Power: Start a Literacy Movement." ILA provides an activity kit for all ages inspired by their focus country, the Philippines. You can also build a Little Free Library as a service project to celebrate literacy all year round. If you celebrate International Literacy Day, ILA asks that you share on social media with #ILD15 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
