World Read Aloud Day

2022-01-25 16:53:29

LitWorld founded World Read Aloud Day in 2010 in celebration of the power of reading aloud to create community, to amplify new stories, and to advocate for literacy as a foundational human right.

To celebrate, the JKPL will post a smash cut video of library staff members reading aloud brief excerpts from favorite books. Patrons are also encouraged to celebrate and share a brief video or photograph of them reading aloud. Videos can be posted on the library’s social media or emailed to between February 2 - 6. Everyone who participates will get their name entered into a special prize drawing.
