This is Adult Education and Family Literacy Week

The week of October 18-23 is Adult Education and Family Literacy Week thanks to a recent resolution of the U.S. House of Representatives.

What this means for the District of Columbia is that the Adult Literacy Resource Center at DC Public Library’s main library (Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G St NW) and DC LEARNs are collaborating to recognize the many achievements of adult learners and the connections between adult literacy and other issues, such as public health, housing, and safety.

But wait, there’s more:   DC’s activities feature a book giveaway contest featuring books by and about adult learners such as Life is Not a Fairytale by Fantasia Barrino and The Teacher Who Couldn’t Read by John Corcoran.   The new DC LEARNs DC adult literacy blog will operate the contest.   The giveaways start October 20th.   To find out which book will be given away when, fan DC adult literacy to be updated.

Book to be given away on October 20:   Fantasia's Life is Not a Fairytale.
