Reading and Financial Literacy Month

Read Across MarylandThe Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland, Inc. launched its Read Across Maryland program in partnership with the Governor's Office of Community Initiatives. This annual program encourages and raises awareness of reading and financial literacy. It calls for every individual in every community to celebrate reading and financial literacy during October. Accordingly, Governor Larry Hogan proclaims October as Reading and Financial Literacy Month.
Read Across Maryland will focus on educating individuals on the importance of reading and financial literacy. In cities and towns across Maryland, educators, students, librarians, legislators, athletes, parents, grandparents, and others develop Read Across Maryland activities to bring reading and financial literacy excitement to people of all ages. The Governor’s office, mayors, county executives, and elected officials recognize the role that reading and finances play within their communities. All schools and nonprofits within the state of Maryland are encouraged to partner with the Caucus and the Governor's Office of Community Initiatives to motivate students to become successful readers and financial stewards.

Read BRAILLE Across Maryland 10/01/2019 to 10/31/2019 In accordance with The Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland, Inc., and the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives, The Maryland State Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (LBPH) will support the Read Across Maryland initiative by launching our “Read Braille Across Maryland” during the month of October. A 2009 study from the National Federation of the Blind found only 10% of visually impaired children in the US are now learning to read Braille. Braille is a necessary skill to acquire for the success of every blind or visually impaired child. LBPH wants to advocate every organization, agency, family, and child to read BRAILLE. During the month of October, LBPH will disseminate our “Braille Bettie” to local schools, agencies, organizations, and families. Show your support for Braille literacy by taking a photo of yourself reading Braille books, magazines, or literature with Braille Bettie. Post it with the hashtag #ReadBrailleMD to our social media platforms. www.face​book.com/mdlbph​ www.twitter.com/md_lbph​ Pass Bettie to a friend, family member, or colleague and keep Bettie reading throughout the month of October. Let’s show Maryland how much we value reading Braille and support the READ ACROSS MARYLAND initiative.
