If you are interested in helping SMART Reading get 10,000 Oregonians to take the Reading Matters pledge and read aloud to the children in their lives on February 5th, please see the email below from Jennifer Patterson, State Librarian.

FYI, SMART Reading created a promotional toolkit<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pCj_Z0iVYBb0gIOkS-XMRoNBscv-pB2K0vopNRxKHRo/edit> with suggested social media posts and newsletter blurbs, logos, and more.

Subject: [Libs-Or] World Read Aloud Day

The library community understands the importance of reading, both as a powerful tool for learning and a critical skill for kids to be successful in school and beyond (and it's fun!). Currently, more than half of Oregon third-graders are reading below grade level, which is a significant issue for our communities. SMART Reading, a statewide children's literacy nonprofit, is raising awareness about the importance of reading with kids in honor of World Read Aloud Day on Feb. 5, 2020.

World Read Aloud Day is an international observance celebrated by millions of people worldwide that aims to advocate for literacy as a fundamental human right. This year, SMART Reading has issued a challenge to get 10,000 Oregonians to take the Reading Matters pledge and read aloud with children in their lives on Feb. 5.

To take the pledge or learn more about SMART Reading and World Read Aloud Day, visit www.smartreading.org/world-read-aloud-day<http://www.smartreading.org/world-read-aloud-day>.

Thank you!
