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 by empowering educators, inspiring students, and encouraging leaders with the resources they need to make literacy accessible for all.

ILA supports International Literacy Day and the countless activities that take place worldwide. We encourage you to visit the UNESCO website to learn more about the organization's theme for 2018, "Literacy and Skills Development."
