Literacy- the ability to read- makes a difference in a person’s life. It is an issue around the world, even in Nevada County. Alan Archer from ReadUp talks about International Literacy Day and the importance of learning to read.
850 million people worldwide cannot read. The United States has its share of non-readers too and its a concern.
And Nevada County has its share of non-readers.
ReadUp sponsored by the Nevada County Library is an organization that is here to help. Archer talks about how it assists adults and families to help break a cycle of illiteracy.
