IFLA Leads Effort to Increase Global Literacy

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY), and the International Literacy Association (ILA) signed a joint memorandum of understanding to work toward increasing global literacy rates to 100%. The organizations will “share knowledge, work together, and participate in each other’s congresses to stress the importance of reading and access to information, and find practical ways of making this a reality,” according to the press release.

“Universal literacy remains one of the great challenges of our time. Truly sustainable, bottom-up development depends on everyone having the ability to read and engage with information. In signing this memorandum with IBBY and ILA, I look forward to continuing a partnership that is making a real difference for people and communities around the world,” says Gerald Leitner, IFLA’s secretary general.

For more information, read the press release.
