Today is World Book Day!
Celebrate World Book Day today by encouraging children and adults in your community to read. Lions everywhere are participating in the Reading Action Program by donating books to schools, teaching adults how to read, reading to children at libraries and so much more.
Here are some local volunteer opportunities and ideas that promote literacy in your community:
- Hold a monthly reading challenge at your library
- Host a book fair and invite a local author or illustrator
- Donate computers to the community center
- Give parents books for their children and encourage reading together at home
- Provide assistive devices to children or adults who have low vision
What is your favorite book to read to children?
