International literacy day in East End

Bookworms around the world unite today in celebration of International Literacy Day.

The day is designed to promote the importance of literacy, not just for the sake of reading, but to the improvement of communities and societies, boosting education, job prospects and parenting skills.
At East End Primary School, guest readers have recently graced the students with book readings to boost and reinforce a love of good stories at any age.
Mrs. Ebanks from the East End library says literacy has to go beyond the classroom and continue at home.

“If parents are not involved then children will fall short, right, but when parents are there then the support is there for them, to guide them through their early learning stage of reading and to develop all the skills that they need,” said East End Public Libraries Branch Manager, Sandra Ebanks.

International literacy day dates back to 1965, and it’s marked not only by the schools here, but by Rotary and Rotaract clubs, as well as a Rotary created non-profit “LIFE”, which stands for “Literacy is for everyone.”
