International Literacy Day

International Literacy Day (ILD), celebrated annually on September 8, shines a spotlight on global literacy needs, which goes hand in hand with ILA's mission: literacy for everyone, everywhere. On ILD (and every day), ILA advocates for a literate world, supports literacy educators and leaders, and celebrates the power of literacy.

ILA supports International Literacy Day and the countless activities that take place worldwide. This year, we are focusing on our professional development activities for educators and will not be producing an ILD toolkit. We encourage you to visit the UNESCO website to learn more about the organization's theme for 2017, "Literacy in a Digital World."
