Today is International Literacy Day, and UNESCO's emphasis this year is Literacy and Sustainable Development. As they state on their website, "Literacy is a human right, a tool of personal empowerment and a means for social and human development. Educational opportunities depend on literacy."
One of the things I do to help promote literacy is volunteer and support my local Friends of the Library organization. Is there something you can do in your home or community to help promote reading and writing?
