On August 18th, 2017, at 9:30 a.m., Governor Brownback will sign a proclamation declaring September 3-9 Kansas Literacy Week. The Kansas Masonic Literacy Center (KMLC), working with Kansas Libraries, Kansas Masons, and professional literacy associations invite all residents of Kansas to join in highlighting the economic and societal importance of literacy.
Kansas Literacy Week coincides with National Read a Book Day (September 6th), and International Literacy Day (September 8th).
Communities, schools, libraries, and other organizations are encouraged to use this week to recognize and celebrate the importance of literacy for all Kansans. Feel free to share your plans, ideas, and excitement using #KSliteracyweek and #kmlc.
