World Book Day

Reading changes lives
World Book Day - Sunday April 23, is all about celebrating reading and books.
Reading paves the way for intellectual and emotional growth throughout our lives. Studies show that there are many benefits to reading — from helping us overcome stress to keeping our brains sharp.
Books nurture our imaginations and our empathy, take us places we've never been, and introduce us to ideas and people we might never have otherwise encountered. Literacy skills can help empower people, positively impact communities and enrich lives.
Happy World Book Day!

Warren,

Thanks for providing this info!

I can't imagine a life without reading books. I always have at least two books going; one by my nesting chair downstairs and one beside my bed. Although I buy a lot of books, I also get a lot of them from two local libraries. I belong to two book clubs, and I almost always get the books for them from the libraries. I also donate books to their library book sales.

While we're on the subject, please remember that Trump's new budget completely eliminates funding for museums and libraries. If you support access to libraries for all people in our communities, please consider contacting your congress members to let them know that you support libraries, and please support keeping these fairly minimal funds in the budget.

We need our libraries so everyone has access to information. Without libraries, we lose an essential part of our freedom--the right to information, which increases the mentality and education of our population. Without libraries, we'd be a nation of "reality," soaps, and melodrama TV or violent movies. That isn't where our heads should be.

Thank you, Warren, for shining a light on these great groups specifically and on the wider issue of literacy. People, and especially politicians, don't grasp the huge problem of illiteracy and low-literacy in our country. I had a professor who said if you wanted to bring down incarceration rates, bring up literacy rates. A huge percentage of those in prison have low literacy or are illiterate. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that people who can't read don't have great options in life.
