The State of Literacy Now


Dear friends,

The past 2 ½ months have been strange at best, and COVID-19 is affecting each one of us in multiple ways. As we continue to navigate through this pandemic, we at Literacy Now are focused on continuing to serve our kids who still need us, maybe now more than ever.

During this time of separation, the reading gap is growing wider and wider, but we are determined to close that gap as we continue to empower kids to read. I invite you to take a few minutes to watch this video that shows how we are still building relationships and serving our kids despite the digital divide (devices and internet) most of them face.

Together, we will continue to find innovative ways to serve our children and families during these uncertain times.
