Mulitple Literacy Series: Mass Literacy

Mass Literacy can be described as getting literacy support to the masses.

The Mass Literacy mission statement is listed below.  How can school librarians and libraries support mass literacy?

Mass Literacy partners with public and private institutions and organizations to achieve these goals: 

  • Educate the public about literacy through coordinated media outreach.  Recognize and reward leadership and excellence in the field of literacy. 
  • Empower strong families and a literate workforce.
  • Encourage collaboration and partnerships that strengthen literacy. 
There are standards that correlate with mass literacy.
