Encouraging young people to read
Today is International Literacy Day, so we thought it would be a great time to talk books.
In 1965, September 8 became to be International Literacy Day. Since then, schools, communities and organisations have united around the world raised awareness and increased accessibility to education in developing nations. The World Literacy Foundation’s 2016 campaign 'The Sky’s The Limit' promotes the profile of literacy within your school and local community. This year, the World Literacy Foundation has created an innovative campaign that aims to eliminate the digital divide for students in the developing world, and increase student engagement via an exciting digital learning platform.
Arcadia Books owner Doris Mousdale gave us her pick of books to get young people into reading.
