Happy Literacy Day!

Gov. Rick Snyder, with support from the Daughters of the American Revolution of Michigan, the Michigan Department of Education, Library of Michigan and public libraries and schools across the state, has declared today, November 1, Literacy Day in Michigan.

At KDL, of course, every day is Literacy Day and we recognize the ability to read as the gift that keeps on giving. As former first lady Laura Bush once said, “Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.”
