World Read Aloud Day

March 5, 2014.  This time, we are going to do it up right!  I'm so excited to partner with our fabulous lower and middle school librarians to support this excellent cause.  Check out all the information about the day from LitWorld. 
Every year on the first Wednesday of March LitWorld's advocacy campaign for the human right of literacy calls worldwide attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. 
Imagine a world where everyone can read...

World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day motivates 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.
