Celebrate World Read Aloud Day

Librarians, authors, adults, teens, and children from all over the globe will celebrate the power of words and stories today during the annual World Read Aloud Day.

Sponsored by the New York-based literacy organization LitWorld, participants are asked to read with loved ones and friends to help reach a goal of 774 million minutes of reading to honor the 774 million people worldwide who are illiterate.
