World Read Aloud Day
About This Event
Celebrate World Read Aloud Day at the Greenfield Public Library on Wednesday, February 7, from 9:30 am -5 pm by reading aloud from one of the selected books we will have available. From 4 -4:30 pm , there will be picture books available for reading in the Children’s Activity Room.
LitWorld founded World Read Aloud Day® (WRAD) in 2010 to celebrate the power of reading aloud to create community and amplify new stories, and to advocate for literacy as a foundational human right. Since then, World Read Aloud Day has evolved into a global movement of millions of readers, writers, and listeners from communities all across the world coming together to honor the joy and power of reading and continue expanding the definition and scope of global literacy.
Every year, World Read Aloud Day has been one of the top trending hashtags on Twitter, celebrated by millions of people in over 170 countries. From celebrities to students, World Read Aloud Day brings us together to celebrate the unique impact of sharing stories.
