Unite for Literacy to Create Picture Book Abundance

Commitment by

Unite for Literacy

In 2014, Unite for Literacy and its partners committed to adding fifty new digital books developed in ten languages, including five indigenous languages, to its free digital library. Unite for Literacy will also promote usage of the digital library by engaging 600 public, private, and nonprofit organizations to leverage their marketing and community outreach activities. Collaborations with corporate sponsors and civic sector groups will aim to expand awareness of the library among the families these organizations serve. Museums, public radio, libraries, and public television stations will contribute new and culturally relevant books, language narrations, and family activity videos. Ultimately, this commitment will result in 50,000 unique visits to the library and help emergent readers find books that reflect their own cultures and languages.
