World Read Aloud Day
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 firstname.lastname@example.org between February 2 - 6. Everyone who participates will get their name entered into a special prize drawing.
