Celebrate the Holidays with Books

Join Literacy Volunteers of Greater Augusta at Barnes & Noble this Sunday, Dec. 18th from 1-5pm. What greater gift, but the gift of reading. Enjoy browsing at Barnes & Noble for that perfect book, stop by the café, and while you might want to consider some indulgences at the cafe, let LVA friends and volunteers wrap your purchases for you. Wrapping is free, but any donation you might want to consider will help to make a difference for one of our learners. LVA volunteers will also be at Barnes & Noble on Friday, December 23rd, from 1-5pm for all the last minute shoppers. Santa's Elves at B&N 2

November – National Family Literacy Month

November is National Family Literacy Month! There are many facets and faces of family literacy and learning.

As we join our family and friends over the Thanksgiving holidays – please remember those among your family, friends and teachers that taught you to read, gave you inspiration through learning and supported you as you sought your goals in life and say THANK YOU! Please remember those who may still experience barriers due to reading and language skills.  Take some time to read to a child, make some personal time to just enjoy a book, read a new recipe, learn a new skill through reading, or take a family trip to a local library or museum. Make family literacy more than just a by-line.

A special thank you to all of our volunteers that give so much of themselves to help someone improve their lives and thank you to all of our learners whose courage is amazing.
