Barbara Bush Literacy Program - Literacy Month

Barbara Bush Literacy Program


"The American Dream is about equal opportunity for everyone who works hard. If we don't give everyone the ability to read and write, then we aren't giving everyone an equal chance to succeed."
-- Mrs. Barbara Bush


The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy is committed to giving the precious gift of literacy to the millions of Americans who cannot read. The NFRW, working in concert with the Barbara Bush Foundation, asks local clubs to share their literacy projects each September during NFRW Literacy Month. This annual program was established by the NFRW Literacy Committee in 2002.

The NFRW recognizes clubs that document their work to promote literacy. The deadline for clubs to share their projects is October 31. (Need help finding this submission form? See details at the bottom of this page.)

Let us know what your club does for literacy. It is important and fun!
