Adult Education and Family Literacy Week is Sept. 24 - 30, 2017. This yearly event is sponsored by the National Coalition for Literacy (NCL), National-coalition-literacy.org Check out the NCL fact-sheet to learn more about the importance of improving America’s literacy rates. WRAE is committed to investing in our students’ literacy skills. We strive to see our students attain success and improve the prospects for themselves and their families.
Coincidentally, the American Library Association (ALA) celebrates Banned Books Week during the same exact dates as the AEFL Week. What better time to read a banned book than during a week-long celebration of reading. Now is the time to check out your local library for suggestions of banned books to read. You might be surprised to learn what it takes for a book to make this infamous list and equally surprised to find books you would never had thought to be controversial that actually have been challenged at one time or another (or on a daily-basis!). See below for more information about Banned Book Week from the ALA website:
Banned Books Week - September 24 - 30, 2017
Banned Books Week, an annual celebration of the freedom to read since 1982, is observed the last week of September. Each year, librarians, booksellers, teachers and countless others take this opportunity to highlight the importance of intellectual freedom and remind us not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted. Contact ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) with questions.
