International Literacy Day on September 8 is a day to celebrate the power of literacy and to bring awareness to its importance. This day has been celebrated since 1965, when UNESCO declared it as an international observance in order to promote reading and writing around the world. It's a great way for us all to recognize how far we've come in terms of education, and also help those who are still struggling with learning how to read or write basic skills.
