International Literacy Day

Sep 06, 2016

September 8 is International Literacy Day, a time to celebrate the importance of reading in our lives and reflect on the importance of helping children learn this important skill. Today we thank all of our community partners supporting education.

Remember that you can make a difference and #DoMore for a child in the National Capital Community, whether you volunteer, donate to provide textbooks to students, or become a mentor.

Share your love of reading today by using the #LiteracyDay hashtag. Tag @UWNCA and we’ll share it, too!
