Daviess County Public Library a Part of the Commonwealth’s Literacy Task Force

Dave Spencer

The ability to read is something many of us take for granted. I know I do. In my young life, I just assumed you learned how to read, you know, like you learn how to walk or you learn how to talk.

It’s shocking the number of people who reach adulthood without that vitally important skill. The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA) recognizes that fact and has formed the Kentucky Public Library School Readiness Task Force.

The task force’s aim will be to promote public libraries as a tool for readying children for school and to expand literacy programs.

The task force consists of 54 members. They include representatives from both the Kentucky Department of Education and the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood, a University of Kentucky professor, KDLA staff, and public librarians from around Kentucky including those from Daviess County, Henderson County, McLean County, and Hopkins County-Madisonville.
