Tuesday Tip: Unite for Literacy

The Fort Collins-based Unite for Literacy offers free access to an online library of more than 100 multilingual picture ebooks designed for children at www.uniteforliteracy.com. The text, images, and narrated audio support provided in their Wondrously Infinite Global Library are designed to give families the opportunity to see and hear their home languages and cultures reflected in a book. Users can read silently or listen along as words are read in English or a dozen other languages, including Vietnamese, Somali and Karenni. As mobile access extends to remote and underserved communities, Unite for Literacy is working to ensure that there will be plenty of books for new readers to enjoy.
