International Literacy Day
International Literacy Day is celebrated on the 8th September every year, so this year it falls on Sunday. To encourage participation, though, this year the International Reading Association will be continuing celebrations throughout September. You can find out more on their website. You might also like to take a look at the National Literacy Trust’s website for more information and resources in this area.
As you can imagine, literacy is a cause pretty close to our hearts in the library and you’ll find lots of books and journals on this subject on our Catalogue. The theme this year is ‘Invent your future’, with a focus on promoting literacy skills for future success. Once again, we can help with books on children’s reading, adult literacy and studyskills books which can offer advice on academic writing and note taking. We’ve also got a whole host of fiction and non-fiction books that can be read for pleasure!
