Improving Literacy Rates in West Virginia

February is National Library Lovers Month, a celebration of public, private and school libraries. We’re big fans of libraries – and reading in general – here at WVSU Extension Service. In fact, we recently partnered with Read Aloud West Virginia on the creation of a cool new video that showcases the important work that Read Aloud does to improve literacy rates in the Mountain State.

In honor of National Library Lovers Month, we’re sharing the piece here on the blog. Keep your eyes peeled for some of our Extension personnel and their children in the video!

Thanks to our friends at the South Charleston Public Library and at the various schools featured in the video.

And an extra special thanks to the wonderful volunteer readers! If you’d like information on becoming a volunteer reader with Read Aloud West Virginia, check out their website and Facebook page!
