Library of Congress Literacy Awards Publishes 2015 Best Practices

“The Library of Congress Literacy Awards program, now in its third year, has just published “Best Practices 2015,” a review of the outstanding work in the field of literacy being done by the three 2015 Literacy Awards award winners and 14 additional organizations that are successfully implementing best practices in literacy and reading promotion. The Center for the Book in the Library of Congress administers the program, which is made possible by the generosity of David M. Rubenstein, co-founder of The Carlyle Group and a major donor to the Library of Congress, including its annual National Book Festival. The Literacy Awards advisory board reviewed applications received from 22 U.S. states and 24 countries. The Librarian of Congress made the final selections. “Best Practices 2015” focuses on five evidence-based practices that have been shown to promote literacy. The 14 profiled groups are effectively implementing these practices to support their literacy programming. The report can be accessed on the Center for the Book’s website.”
