#Ward8Reads is dedicated to elevating the issues of literacy & book access in SEDC. While we support community libraries and book outreach we are equally focused on the policy issue: What can we do to raise awareness about the serious issues of low literacy attainment in #Ward8? Sincere thanks goes out to our Councilmember Trayon White and his legislative lead Dana Hall for listening to our concerns and introducing the "Literacy Commission Establishment Act". We look forward to our continued work together to ensure this Bill is shaped to support the needs of #Ward8 Families.
