The fourth annual Kentucky Literacy Celebration week will be March 17-21 and will be marked by a number of activities and announcements. See flyer here.

The week chosen for this event coincides with other literacy related activities that may help inspire participation. February is African-American Read-In month, sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English, and March includes Read across America activities, sponsored by the National Education Association.

This document contains several ideas about how every Kentuckian can be involved in the literacy celebration. Monitor this web link for additional information about this unique statewide event.

The Kentucky Literacy Celebration is a result of collaboration among several literacy/education institutions and Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear. The intent of the event is to highlight literacy in Kentucky, celebrate literacy accomplishments and focus on the challenges we still face as a state.
