September is National Literacy Month and Saturday, Sept. 8 marks the 52nd annual International Literacy Day. The annual event brings together communities, organizations, educators and students to raise awareness for literacy and its importance as a foundation for lifelong learning.
International Literacy Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a way to promote awareness about and find solutions for illiteracy. Since its creation in 1966, the day has been celebrated internationally each year. Many organizations, including Phi Kappa Phi, extend the celebration beyond this day to devote the entire month to literacy awareness.
